Last year, states passed a record 92 restrictions on women’s access to reproductive health services. Just last week, lawmakers in Virginia were poised to force women to have an invasive and unnecessary transvaginal ultrasound before having an abortion. And as we speak, the state of Texas is cutting reproductive health care services for hundreds of thousands of low-income women.
What other hurdles will they make women jump over to get the reproductive health care they need?
The attacks on women’s access to reproductive health care are increasing at an alarming rate, and the ability of women to obtain the health care they need has never been at greater risk. Right now, Oklahoma is trying to give fertilized eggs legal rights, while Alabama picked up where Virginia left off and passed a bill out of committee that would mandate transvaginal ultrasounds for abortion care. If the past few weeks are any indication, the relentless assaults on women’s health care will continue unabated. We can’t stand by and wait to see what their next attack brings — watch our new video and tell your leaders to stop the attacks on women’s reproductive health by saying: My Health is NOT Up for Debate™!
Thank you for continuing to fight to protect women’s access to reproductive health care services.
