Abortion Criminalization Defense

“Every woman deserves safe healthcare, and that includes the right to an abortion. The decision to have an abortion is not taken lightly, nor without care and reflection. The decision to have an abortion is also understandably private. If you are facing criminal charges because of your decision to have an abortion or that of someone you love or care for, you deserve competent and zealous representation.”

Louren Oliveros

If you are a woman, person or healthcare provider charged with a crime related to having an abortion or assisting with an abortion, I can help you. I have over 20 years of experience in criminal defense and civil rights, and over 10 years of experience in medical malpractice. My experience in these areas makes me uniquely qualified to advocate for any individual charged with abortion-related crimes.

I have been an advocate for women and equality my entire life and believe in a woman’s right to privacy, dignity and to be autonomous in her own bodily integrity. I believe that a decision to have an abortion is a private health care decision, not a crime. Yet, if such acts are deemed criminal, I will fight for you and in your defense. If you face these charges and are without means, I will work on a sliding scale, or pro bono, as needed.
