How We Are Making An Impact.

The AYC Team is joining lawyers, politicians, professors, students and activists to get laws passed in every state protecting people from nonconsensual intimate exams.

Our Mission

The film is part of a national campaign to pass laws in all fifty states banning non-consensual intimate exams on unconscious patients.

State Bans

Twenty one states have now made the practice of teaching medical students to identify abnormalities by conducting intimate exams— without prior express consent, illegal. The states that have banned the practice include NY, MD, UT, WA and DE, in 2019. In 2020, LA ME, and NH followed suit. AR, AZ and, most recently, TX and NV  also joined in 2021, along with NJ and Connecticut in 2022. Others are CA, HI, IL, WI, OR, VA.
