Sanders, Shaheen, Welch and Kuster Co-sponsor Women’s Health Protection Act

You’ve heard the bad news. Just last week, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham introduced a nationwide ban on abortion after 20 weeks. Rick Perry’s outrageous anti-abortion law is taking effect in Texas — cutting off access to safe and legal abortion to one in three Texas women. Our opponents are determined, relentless, and organized.

But in the midst of all this, women’s health champions are going on offense. On November 13th, Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal and California Congresswoman Judy Chu introduced a groundbreaking piece of legislation — the Women’s Health Protection Act.

It’s a bold step forward for women’s health — and we need to speak up now to get Congress to take notice.

In state after state, lawmakers are singling out abortion providers for extreme and outrageous restrictions. Some of these so-called TRAP laws require doctors to perform ultrasounds on women seeking abortion. They set inch-by-inch dimensions for exam rooms, hallways, even janitors’ closets. Some mandate particular kinds of lawn care specifically for health centers where abortions take place.

The Women’s Health Protection Act would help stop these underhanded attacks on women’s health and rights. It would also eliminate laws like the 20-week bans that have passed in Texas, Louisiana, and Indiana — and even the draconian 6-week ban in North Dakota.

Tell Congress to support the Women’s Health Protection Act now.
