In Her Own Words


"Women across the country are losing access to critical health services due to unnecessary and unconstitutional state laws that restrict a woman’s right to choose. That’s why it’s so important for Congress to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act.  Every woman should be able to exercise her constitutional right to make the best health care decisions for herself and her family, no matter what state she lives in.”1
