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. ​

Act Now: Speak out against the domestic gag rule and protect Title X

As the United States’ only federal family planning program, Title X provides access to affordable birth control, cancer screenings, and other critical preventive health services. As a result of the recently implemented domestic gag rule, many health care clinics have been forced to withdraw from the Title X program, rendering reproductive health care access unattainable for millions of Americans. Urge the Senate to include provisions in the fiscal year 2020 funding bills that protect Title X and promote reproductive health care access for Americans who need it.
