NASW-SC Statement on Roe v. Wade 6/24/22.

Today is a sad day for our country and state with the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. What was a fundamental right for almost 50 years is now gone. What was legal yesterday is now illegal. This ruling has taken away a person's right to choose. A person's right to choose reproductive health that is best for them, their body, their health, and their family. With this ruling it is one more step in the wrong direction. This ruling now leaves it up to each state to choose their own course of action related to abortion. What does this mean for SC? Our current Governor McMaster has already expressed a desire to promote more aggressive anti-abortion bills for SC. This means he can call the Legislators back at any time this year to vote on a more aggressive anti-abortion bill. This is unacceptable!!! As social workers, NOW is the time to let your voices be heard. Please contact your state and federal legislators and tell them WE STAND FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS!! 

EXAM PREP CLASS!

NASW-SC Statement on Recent Events:

After four years of turmoil and devastating policies, the unimaginable happened. The attack on our government on January 6, which left five dead and could have cost the lives of our Vice President and several Congressmen and women, appears to have been launched by the rhetoric of President Trump himself, with the encouragement of his family and political allies.

NASW-SC stands firmly against this violence and attack on our democratic process. Our country is built on civil discourse and dissent, advocacy, and debate. Yes, we can disagree on how to address the issues we face - but we must recognize the escalation of conflict and divisiveness are ineffective and dangerous. We strongly and unquestionably condemn the use of violence and inciteful rhetoric.
