Gross mischaracterizations continue to be made about abortion later in pregnancy. The Senate will soon consider a bill that targets abortion and injects politicians into the patient-physician relationship. The legislation disregards providers’ training and clinical judgment and undermines their ability to determine the best course of treatment with their patients. Please call your Senators and explain that abortion is health care and that politicians should not interfere with the patient-provider relationship. Ask them to oppose S. 311.
I am a constituent from ____. I want Senator ____ to know that there is no such thing as an abortion up until birth. Abortions later in pregnancy happen because of extremely complex, urgent circumstances. These patients deserve compassion and high-quality care, not judgment and shame. Women, in consultation with their physicians, must be able to evaluate all appropriate treatments and make informed decisions about what’s best for their health and their pregnancies. Please oppose S. 311.
