The United States Supreme Court cannot be trusted to stem the ongoing assault on a woman’s right to choose.
I support and will vote for the federal Women’s Health Protection Act.
As per HR 3755, the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021:
- “Abortion services are essential to health care and allows…people who are pregnant to make their own decisions about their pregnancies, their families, and their lives.”
- “Since 1973, the Supreme Court repeatedly has recognized the constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy before fetal viability, and to terminate a pregnancy after fetal viability where it is necessary, in the good-faith judgement of the treating health care professional, for the preservation of the life or health of the person who is pregnant.”
- “Reproductive justice requires every individual to have the right to make their own decisions about having children regardless of their circumstances and without interference and discrimination.”
- International human rights law recognizes that access to abortion is intrinsically linked to the rights to life, health, equality and nondiscrimination, privacy, and freedom from ill-treatment.”
I will support this Act and its stated purpose “to permit health care providers to provide abortion services without limitations or requirements that single out the provision of abortion services for restrictions that are more burdensome than those restrictions imposed on medically comparable procedures, do not significantly advance reproductive health or the safety of abortions services, and make abortions services more difficult to access.”
