When you or someone you care about goes to the hospital, you deserve to be confident that your medical providers will be permitted to offer the best care possible. But in Washington state, this doesn't always happen. By restricting medically-necessary services to pregnant patients, health care entities discriminate and create harmful, unjust barriers to care. Demand a healthy Washington. Urge your legislator to support HB 2561: The protecting pregnancy and miscarriage-related patient care act. This bill would prevent health entities from interfering with a qualified health care practitioner’s ability to provide care to a patient who is miscarrying and whose health or life is at serious risk. This bill is necessary to address discrimination and to ensure patients get the care they need.
