Abortion: Our Right to Choose flyer (ca. 1978-1979)
This flyer from the Abortion Action Coalition encourages pro-choice supporters to write their legislators and encourage them to vote against anti-abortion laws, such as the Doyle-Flynn anti-abortion bill. The Doyle-Flynn bill cut state funding for abortions, following the national adoption of the Hyde Amendment, which allowed states to restrict Medicaid payments for abortions. The Abortion Action Coalition was founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1977 in response to the Doyle-Flynn bill, and disbanded in 1980. From Abortion Action Coalition records.
