Dear Member of Congress:
On September 1st, the most extreme abortion-ban bill Texas has ever seen went into effect and is now law. The U.S. Supreme Court had the power to block the law and protect our reproductive rights yet they made the decision not to. It has become clear that threats towards reproductive healthcare in Texas are a threat to reproductive healthcare, rights, and justice everywhere.
As one of over a million members of MomsRising, I am writing to ask that you support the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA)! WHPA is essential to social and economic equality, reproductive autonomy, and the right to determine our own lives. People hurt most by abortion restrictions are those who already face barriers to accessing health care —particularly Black, Brown, Latino, Indigenous, and other POC in Texas and elsewhere already living in fear for their lives due to police violence in their communities and schools, food insecurity, and now these attacks on our access to reproductive health care.
There is no time to waste. We are in a state of emergency as lives are on the line.
WHPA will protect the right to access abortion care throughout the U.S. by safeguarding access against bans and medically unnecessary restrictions, hundreds of which have been passed in recent years by anti-abortion state lawmakers. Anyone who needs an abortion in the United States, deserves quality, affordable medical care, and a relationship with their health care provider that is free from government intrusion. The WHPA protects these rights: Equal access to abortion, everywhere for everyone. Please support the WHPA!
