In response to the enactment of the unjust and blatantly unconstitutional abortion ban enacted in Texas, the United States House of Representatives passed the Women's Health Protection Act (WHPA) on September 24th.
Sponsored by California Representative Judy Chu, the bill would codify into federal law a person’s ability to decide to continue or end a pregnancy, and preserve the ability of health care providers to provide abortion care without restrictions. The measure also prohibits restrictions that would put a patient’s life or health at risk.
The WHPA is a critical and necessary to protect access to abortion care nationwide.
It’s now up to the Senate, and all of us to ensure that this crucial piece of legislation becomes the law of the land so that everyone, regardless of who they are or where they live, can access time-sensitive abortion care with dignity and respect.
Take Action! Urge your Senator to Support Abortion Access for All!
