Until the Hyde Amendment is repealed and poor women receive adequate support for all of their reproductive health needs, rich and poor women will continue to live in two different countries with two different sets of rights.
On this, the 35th anniversary of Hyde, I invite you to share your own story. Share it through the 1 in 3 Campaign or just with a few people in your own social circle. Share my story, or one from the other women who have courageously contributed to this campaign.
September 30th is the 35th “anniversary” of the Hyde Amendment. Hyde’s legacy is that pitted women of different economic classes against each other, and resulted in a pattern of trading reproductive health care for other health coverage.
