Everyone deserves respect, dignity, and equal access to the resources needed to control their body, family, and future, including insurance coverage of abortion. Urge your lawmakers to support the EACH Act today to ensure that abortion care is there for all of us — however much we earn, wherever we live, and whoever we are. Call your representative and ask them to support the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH) Act today and permanently end the Hyde amendment and related coverage bans and prohibit federal political interference in private insurance coverage of abortion. You can find more information on the EACH Act here: https://www.ncjw.org/act/action/urge-your-lawmakers-to-fight-for-equal-access-to-abortion-coverage/
The Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) would protect the right to abortion access by creating a safeguard against bans and medically unnecessary restrictions. WHPA passed the House in a historic vote on September 24, 2021, and must pass the Senate to become law. This will not be an easy task, as it has been many years since the Senate voted on abortion legislation, let alone passed a bill to protect and advance abortion access. As a community, we must call on the Senate to pass WHPA to protect access to abortion and to help us build a society where all women, children, and families can thrive in our communities with dignity. Call your Senators today and visit https://www.ncjw.org/act/action/support-whpa/ for more information on WHPA.
In Illinois, we need to repeal the harmful forced Parental Notice of Abortion (PNA), an unecessary law that puts young people in danger and interferes with their access to time-sensitive health care. Please reach out to the Governor and the leaders of the Illinois General Assembly and let them know that the time is NOW to repeal PNA in Illinois! Visit https://repealpna.org for more information.
