An open letter to the U.S. House of Representatives

Think outside of the box to protect abortion rights!

174 so far! Let’s get to 250 signers!

I’m very concerned about the attacks on reproductive freedom happening in our country. While I know the House has already passed the Women’s Health Protection Act its chances in the Senate are shaky. But there’s more Congress can do. One impediment to abortion access is the Hyde amendment, which prohibits the use of federal money for abortions. It is urgent to repeal this amendment permanently, as H.R. 2234 proposes. This bill could evade the filibuster, too, if it were included as part of the budget reconciliation process. Congress should also make the provision of abortion services available to all Medicaid eligible patients. Finally, the FDA should make clear, with an express authorization from Congress, that states may not interfere with the use of mifepristone, a federally-approved drug, whether for abortion or other purposes. It’s time to think outside of the box to protect the right to choose. Thanks.
