In the weeks following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a dozen states across the country moved to enforce abortion bans. Ultimately, half the states are expected to ban abortion and take away the right to decide if and when to have a child from millions of people – disproportionately people of color and people with the fewest resources, who already face barriers to accessing health care due to systemic inequality. It's more urgent than ever that we do all we can to defend our reproductive freedom.
The House will soon vote on two important bills: the Women's Health Protection Act (WHPA), to protect the right to access abortion nationwide by providing federal safeguards against abortion bans and restrictions – and the Ensuring Women’s Right to Reproductive Freedom Act, to reaffirm the right of people to travel out-of-state to seek abortion care and to help those who do. In this crisis moment, let’s make sure your representatives act: Send a message urging them to pass these two critical pieces of legislation immediately.
