Abortion Is Your Business: An innovation ecosystem conversation with the VCs For Repro Coalition

Janna Meyrowitz Turner Synastry Capital

As the US regresses on reproductive freedom and other liberties, zooming out is required to see how we would act if we saw this happening in another country. VCs For Repro is an independent coalition that came together before the 2022 US midterm election to say that “Criminalizing abortion violates human rights and is anti-innovation. This matters to the people investing in our economy, VOTE like it matters to you.” Today abortion and reproductive health freedom is a 2024 general election issue like never before. Hear from GPs, LPs and entrepreneurs about how VCs For Repro, honored as a Fast Company “World Changing Idea” honor for 2023, came together with over $112B (*this number will expand by Fall 2024) of private asset managers across 125 firms (*this will expand too!) flexing their social and cultural capital on what was once perceived to be a “third rail” issue: abortion.
