Working Families Liveblog: Double Booked at the White House Summit

Fresh Updates from RAC » Women’s Rights   |   Jun 23, 2014 12:00 AM

The Supreme Court ruled in 1973 that the right to choose to terminate a pregnancy was a fundamental part of a woman’s right to privacy and self-determination; yet today, anti-choice advocates right routinely seek to limit access to safe and affordable abortion services.
Family planning and contraceptive programs ensure reproductive choice, limit the occurrence of unintended pregnancies, and save billions of dollars in pregnancy-related and newborn care costs to Medicaid.

The Religious Action Center’s work on these issues is supported by a generous contribution from The Barbara Bluhm-Kaul Women’s Rights Issues Endowment.
