Protect Roe. Don't Deny Families Abortion Access!

The Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade, putting millions of people around the country in danger of losing a fundamental right. Please support families by passing the Women’s Health Protection Act which would codify Roe v. Wade into law and protect the right to an abortion at the national level.

Attacks on reproductive healthcare have already made abortion practically inaccessible to millions of families. Lack of access to a safety net and health care is especially challenging for low-income families and families of color. Passing this bill would ensure everyone has access to this health care, and put the decision where it belongs - with patients and their families.

Safe, legal abortion is health care. Restricting or eliminating access to abortion not only negatively impacts the personal and financial life of an individual parent, but that of their family as well.

Please support abortion access for all families.

Why is this important?

The Supreme Court has drafted an opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, the historic Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal across the United States. If this ruling is issued it will take private health care decisions out of the hands of families' and their medical providers and instead give politicians power over our bodies.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, 59% of people seeking abortions already had one birth, and 75% of patients had income below the federal poverty level or are considered low-income.

Attacks on reproductive healthcare have already made abortion practically inaccessible to millions of families. If the draft opinion becomes official, millions more, particularly low-income people and people of color, will lose access to important reproductive health care, have the ability to decide their own future taken away, and be left to the mercy of local politicians.

Safe, legal abortion is health care that millions of families need. Restricting or eliminating access to abortion not only negatively impacts the personal and financial life of an individual parent, but that of their family as well.

This is NOT a done deal. Congress can still act to protect everyone’s right to safe, legal abortion. The Women’s Health Protection Act would protect a person’s ability to determine whether to continue or end a pregnancy, and to protect a health care provider’s ability to provide reproductive healthcare.

Let Congress know that you support reproductive freedom for all by demanding that they pass the Women's Health Protection Act into law.
