On June 4, 2019, leading reproductive health advocates including our board member, Dr. Yashica Robinson, testified at a hearing entitled 'Threats to Reproductive Rights in America' in the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties. This hearing came as a result of the recent passage of total or near-total abortion bans in several states, including Alabama, Louisiana, and Missouri. The Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) would help halt these bans!
This week, please call your member of Congress and urge them to move WHPA forward.
I am a physician/constituent in Representative ___________’s district. Abortion is health care that everyone deserves access to, no matter where they live or their income. The recent actions of states like Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia show that federal protection of abortion is critical to protecting the health and rights of pregnant people in the United States. Please pass the Women’s Health Protection Act and work to protect access to abortion.
