Hey, Womxn Project friends.
While we are working hard to make sure that women in our state have the right to abortion, we also need to make it clear how important it is that the right is a reality. We need to fight for affordable access to quality care. We need to get rid of the barriers that make it harder for young people or that deny health coverage for abortion and push care out of reach for low-income people.
For the THIRD time in just one month, President Trump and his anti-abortion friends in Congress are trying to push abortion care out of reach by attacking abortion coverage. They are trying to discourage health plans from offering benefits, so that people can obtain care regardless of their income. Well we are fighting back.
- TAKE ACTION TODAY (deadline 2/19): A proposed Trump administration rule places unnecessary, burdensome requirements on private insurers. This is the second attempt in a matter of weeks. The Hyde Amendment already denies women who are insured through Medicaid coverage for their abortion, putting their economic security and well-being at risk. This rule could push care out of reach for even more people. Click HERE to make your voice heard and push back on this harmful change.
