Congress just took a historic step forward for racial, economic and reproductive justice 45 years in the making. Every year since 1976, lawmakers have chosen to deny insurance coverage of abortion to people working to make ends meet by adding a policy known as the Hyde Amendment to federal spending bills. But now, for the first time since Hyde’s inception, the U.S House passed a budget without this harmful policy.
Tell Congress to Support the Abortion Justice Act!
We need to guarantee the legal right to abortion and ensure that everyone can get abortion care without politicians creating barriers.
That’s why we need the Abortion Justice Act, a groundbreaking federal bill that protects people’s right to make their own healthcare decisions about abortion, improves availability and affordability, and prevents politicians from creating barriers to care.
