Concerned about a possible female GOP “revolt” over a 20-week abortion ban, Republicans will pinch-hit with another bill from their deep bench of anti-choice legislation—a bill to restrict federal funding for abortion coverage.
House and Senate Democrats on Wednesday reintroduced the Women’s Health Protection Act, a response to an unprecedented onslaught of state-level restrictions on abortion providers that has restricted women’s access to reproductive health care.
The White House called HR 36 “an assault on a woman’s right to choose” and a “direct challenge to the Supreme Court’s holdings on abortion,” such as Roe v. Wade.
Over the past few years, the three abortion clinics I run across the South have been struggling financially and legally. Roe v. Wade turns 42 this year. How did this we end up in this mess?
Since the Supreme Court gave people in the United States the legal right to abortion care with Roe v. Wade 42 years ago, residents of historically “safe” states have too frequently taken our access to reproductive rights for granted.

It is important to critically consider how immigrants are discussed in comment sections, as this has implications for their acceptance, health, and well-being.

Even though the 113th Congress was the least productive in modern history, it did manage to do some work to proactively fight for reproductive rights.
