The EACH Woman Act Would Lift Abortion Restrictions That Lawmakers Say Especially Impact WOC
By Monica Busch
On Tuesday, two Democratic lawmakers unveiled a bill that would lift certain federal restrictions on abortion funding. The Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH) Woman Act, introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee in the House and Sen. Tammy Duckworth in the Senate, would dismantle restrictions that bar federal dollars from being used to pay for abortion services. The two lawmakers tell Bustle that the legislation aims to combat discriminatory rules that have a particularly adverse effect on poor women and women of color.
