Reproductive Rights and Women's Health

The Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 2975/S. 165) takes crucial steps towards protecting access to abortion by prohibiting the countless regulations, bans, and restrictions that prevent people from accessing the reproductive health care they need. 

The Hyde Amendment prohibits the use of federal money for abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is in danger for all federally administered health care plans. This is more than just a reproductive rights issue. It is an economic and racial justice issue, as the Hyde Amendment disproportionately impacts low-income individuals and limits their access to abortion services. ​
