NATIONAL ADVOCATES FOR PREGNANT WOMEN 1 my few seconds I reminded the throngs watching that women who continue their pregnancies to term are also hurt by anti-abortion laws used as “weapons of maternal destruction.” With the leadership of NAPW National Educator and Organizer Wyndi Anderson, NAPW staff, interns and allies also marched that day. Five of them wrote about their experiences, explaining, in the case of John and Amber Marlowe, why they marched in spite of their profound opposition to abortion; how for Freeda Lynne Cathcart, a birthing rights activist, the march was about more than abortion; and for Acrea McIntosh and Adam Posner, how transformative and meaningful the march was for them. Their essays form a special part of this year’s annual report. Today,NAPW has the experience, vision and plan to lead other successful efforts for change.Our four years as an independent nonprofit have confirmed the convic- tion on which NAPW was established: that working at the nexus of reproductive rights, drug policy reform and other intersecting issues strengthens our ability to protect reproductive rights, and provides us with a growing base to demand compassionate, humane and effective policies on behalf of pregnant and parenting women, drug users and families.
