Now in its 26th year, the Our Justice Bowl-a-Thon is the annual fundraising event to support Our Justice. After a year of some monumental change for our organization, we are tapping back into our collective power - reigniting our services and continuing to boldly strike down Reproductive Oppression.

Fact about Our Justice and abortion care
Abortion is one of the safest surgical procedures for women in the United States. Fewer than 0.5% of women obtaining abortions experience a complication.
Approximately 95% of Minnesota counties have no abortion clinic, and 59% of Minnesota women live in these counties.
4 of Minnesota’s five clinics that offer abortion care are in the Twin Cities metro area, and one is in Duluth.
Abortion care costs start at $600 in Minnesota and can go as high as $3,000 for abortion care in the second trimester.
In Minnesota, a pregnant person must receive state-directed counseling that includes information designed to discourage her from having an abortion, and then wait 24 hours before the procedure is provided.
Our Justice has been assisting people in accessing abortion care since 1967, before Roe v. Wade legalized abortion nationally.
