All* Above All is a coalition of pro-abortion groups.

About

All* Above All's stated mission is to unite organizations and individuals to build support for lifting the bans that deny abortion coverage, and to restore public insurance coverage so that every woman, however much she makes, can get affordable, safe abortion care when she needs it. On their website they state as a reason for the founding of the coalition:[1]

"Since the passage of the Hyde Amendment in 1976, Congress has withheld coverage for abortion services from women insured through the Medicaid program. Currently, nearly 1 in 7 women of reproductive age (15-44) is insured through the program, and this will rise when the Affordable Care Act is implemented. Restricting Medicaid coverage of abortion forces one in four women to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term. A woman who wants to get an abortion but is denied is three times more likely to fall into poverty than those who can get an abortion... For too long, politicians have been allowed to deny a woman’s abortion coverage just because she is poor. We believe that the amount of money a woman has or doesn’t have should not prohibit her from having an abortion. We are uniting so every woman can make her own reproductive health decisions without political interference."
