Advocates for Youth applauds the reintroduction of the EACH Woman Act, legislation which lifts bans on abortion coverage, by Representatives Barbara Lee (D-CA), Diana DeGette (D-CO), and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) in the House and Senator Duckworth (D-IL) in the Senate. We are proud to support this groundbreaking legislation to ensure that every person, whatever their income, can get affordable abortion care when they need it.
Advocates for Youth applauds members of Congress for introducing the Reproductive Rights Are Human Rights Act. For young people and women around the world, we hope it is not in vain. We therefore call on Congress to join 122 co-sponsors in the House and 26 in the Senate in making the Reproductive Rights Are Human Rights Act a reality.
"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."
