Two pieces of legislation are currently in Congress that help ensure access to abortion care for everyone:
The EACH Act “would reverse the Hyde Amendment and related abortion coverage restrictions, so that each of us, however much we make, can get affordable, safe abortion care when we need it.” Learn more.
The Women’s Health Protection Act would be “federal legislation that will protect the right to access abortion care throughout the United States.” Read more at the link.
