In the current political climate, it can be challenging to keep track of abortion policies by state. But one amazing high schooler decided to make this easier. How? By creating a website the compiles information on abortion services, state-by-state.

18-year-old Maddy Rasmussen developed the site as part of a school project while interning at Legal Voice, a feminist organization that advocates for women’s rights. 

With so much confusing information floating around the internet, she wanted to simplify the process of finding an abortion clinic. The site, called the Safe Place Project, includes an interactive map that users can use to locate an abortion clinic near them.

It also includes information and restrictions by state, to inform people of any barriers to seeking the operation. It even has an “Escape to Google” button on the webpage that you can click at any time to maintain your privacy. That way, if you’re browsing at work or at home, you can quickly set your browser back to Google.

She told Broadly that states like South Dakota have particularly murky rules, and she wanted to lay them out clearly.

We can’t wait to see what Rasmussen does next in the fight for reproductive rights.
