Today Advocates for Youth joins over 288 organizations from across the country in endorsing the Equality Act. The Equality Act was reintroduced in the 116th Congress today by Representatives David Cicilline (D-RI) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) in the House of Representatives and Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) in the Senate.
"We know from the over 1500 stories submitted to the 1 in 3 Campaign that abortion is a highly personal decision. The last thing we need is for politicians to insert themselves into the relationships between providers and people who need abortion care. This Administration and the anti-abortion extremists in Congress are continuing their campaign of propaganda to stigmatize abortion later in pregnancy, vilify people who need it, and jail providers who do this needed service. But young people aren't falling for it. They support compassionate abortion policy, not these pointless and cruel attacks."
