As states around the nation adopt increasingly restrictive anti-abortion laws, it is critical that Congress pass the Women's Health Protection Act (S. 1975/H.R. 3755), which would enable health care providers to deliver abortion services without medically unnecessary limitations that do not significantly advance patient health or the safety of abortion, or make abortion more difficult to access. Take action today to make your voice heard.
Write to your Members of Congress to urge them to cosponsor and pass the Women's Health Protection Act.
For decades, JCPA has advocated at the state and federal levels, joined amicus briefs, and adopted policy resolutions in support of women’s reproductive freedom. A person’s decision to end a pregnancy is a difficult and personal one that should only be made in consultation with their doctor and others they choose to involve, including their clergy, who may now be targeted simply for providing support based on their religious beliefs.
Medically unnecessary regulations increase costs, decrease efficiency and number of providers, and delay procedures, negatively impacting the quality of safe and legal abortion and shuttering clinics across the country. Further, a person's power to make their own, faith-informed decisions is obstructed when they are required to receive inaccurate or misleading information or clinically unnecessary services like ultrasounds, in-person counseling, and waiting periods.
With dozens of pending lawsuits challenging restrictive or unconstitutional state laws, now is the time to address these threats with federal legislation.
