Yo Te Apoyo

Lifting Voices of Support for a Woman’s Ability to Make Her Own
 Decisions about Her Pregnancy, Her Family, and Her Future

Yo Te Apoyo. I Support You.

In response to the continuing perception of stigma and shame around experiences of abortion, NLIRH launched the “Yo Te Apoyo. I support you” campagin to lift the voices of the Latino community and our allies in support of our sisters, our daughters, our primas, our Tias, and any woman who is making a difficult decision about her pregnancy, her family, and her future. By standing up and standing together, we will fight back against outdated conservative myths about Latin@ views on abortion, as well as harmful policies that would deny women the care they need. The truth is: our community is supportive. And getting more supportive every day. Together, we will show our support for every woman’s ability to make her own decisions about when and whether to become a parent.

“Every woman deserves a shoulder to lean on, a listening ear, a hand to hold. Our communities hold close the values of family, respect, and cariño; we take care of eachother. That’s what Yo Te Apoyo is all about –respecting and supporting a woman’s ability to make her own decisions about pregnancy, her family, and her future.”
