In 2019, Congresswomen Barbara Lee (D-CA), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Diana DeGette (D-CO), and U.S. Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), and Patty Murray (D-WA), introduced the EACH Woman Act (HR 1692 and S 758). This bill ensures coverage for abortion for every woman, however much she earns or however she is insured.

For too long, politicians have interfered in our health decisions by banning insurance coverage for abortion care, and polling shows that a majority of voters agree. 

The EACH Woman Act is our vision and our message to the Trump-Pence administration: we are fighting for a future where our families can thrive, which includes making our own decisions about pregnancy and parenting.

EACH Woman Act (H.R.1692) House co-sponsors.

EACH Woman Act (S.758) Senate co-sponsors.
