Mission

Pregnancy Justice works to ensure that no one loses their rights because of pregnancy or because of their capacity for pregnancy, focusing on pregnant people who are most at risk of state control and criminalization: those who are low-income, of color, and drug-using. We've maintained this mission since we were first established in 2001 as National Advocates for Pregnant Women.

What we aim to solve

Pregnancy Justice works to ensure that no one loses their rights because of pregnancy or because of their capacity for pregnancy, focusing on pregnant people who are most at risk of state control and criminalization: those who are low-income, of color, and drug-using. We seek to minimize the harm of the criminal legal system and family policing system, keep families together, and protect against other forms of state control and violence.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Criminal Defense of Pregnant People

Protecting Pregnant People's Constitutional and Civil Rights

Legal Advocacy, Coalition Building, and Public Education

Research and Documentation

Pregnancy Justice defends people who are charged with crimes because of pregnancy or any pregnancy outcome — including birth, miscarriage, stillbirth, and abortion — through direct representation and strategic legal advocacy.

We defend constitutional and civil rights by challenging laws and actions that violate pregnant people's rights and diminish their full personhood.

Every case we litigate is an opportunity to mobilize local public health, medical, and social justice experts and advocates. We also center the experiences of criminalized people and engage in responsible narrative shifting to educate policymakers, practitioners, and the public.

We document and analyze every case of pregnancy-related criminalization in the country and use our findings to inform legal strategy, academic research, and policy.
