Urge Congress to #ActforWomen

take action

The Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA, S 510/HR 1322) was reintroduced by Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D CT) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), and Reps. Judy Chu (D-CA), Lois Frankel (D-FL) and Marcia Fudge (D-OH), on March 2. Given the surge of medically unnecessary, anti-abortion regulations enacted by states over the past several years, abortion access now varies greatly by state. Such barriers fall hardest on women struggling to make ends meet, women of color, immigrant women, and young people. While the US Supreme Court’s June 2016 ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt struck down regulations aimed at closing clinics, WHPA is critically needed to ban other forms of state restrictions. WHPA would invalidate regulations that single out abortion with medically unnecessary restrictions; those which intrude into a woman’s personal health care decisions; those which do not significantly advance women’s health or safety; and those which obstruct abortion access. This would ensure safe, legal abortion remains available no matter where a person lives, protecting every person’s right and ability to make their own faith-informed decisions about their body, health and future.
