The Cobalt Community

Cobalt’s strength lies in the voices of our community members throughout the state. These voices help us to create and advocate for policies and legislation that are most needed to ensure reproductive health access in Colorado. We rely on our donors to help support our work which includes the Cobalt Abortion Fund. Our partnerships reflect the diversity of our community and are the backbone of our work. Our volunteers help us to spread our message and advocate for candidates and policies that support and enhance reproductive health access.

Messaging Guidance

We encourage you to think about the harm that comes from the wording of these.

🚫 | Coat hangers and “back alley abortions”: We don’t need to reference imagery from the past when abortion was unsafe. Thanks to advancements in medical science and the internet, we have abortion pills (that are super safe and can be mailed!). Coat hanger images and “back alley abortions” imply that there are no longer safe abortion options and perpetuates abortion stigma.

🚫 | Sharia Law: These barriers to abortion access are created by white supremacist, Christian fundamentalists; therefore, these comparisons are inaccurate, racist, and anti-Muslim.

🚫 | The Handmaid’s Tale: This comparison centers fictional, rich, white folks and ignores the reality that many BIPOC communities have long been living in a world where their reproductive health decisions and outcomes have been wrongfully controlled, restricted and criminalized.

🚫 | Underground railroad: Underground railroad is not an appropriate term to use in relationship to this work. It’s culturally appropriative and disrespectful to the legacy of escape from chattel slavery. Abortion funds and practical support organizations already exist to help people navigate getting abortion care.

🚫 | Slavery: We shouldn’t have to tell you or anyone not to do this.
