Banning or severely restricting abortion takes away a person's ability to decide whether to continue a pregnancy and threatens their equality and ability to participate–and thrive–in our society.  The Supreme Court's decision allowing politicians to ban abortion will have far reaching and devastating impacts on gender equality for decades to come.
