With the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which protected the nationwide right to abortion, many states have moved to ban abortion or make it less accessible. Rather than pursuing further restrictions on abortion coverage and access, Congress has a responsibility to help their constituents get the health care they need. Congress must pass the EACH Act.
Six months after the overturning of Roe, 14 states have no clinics offering abortion care. In states where abortion remains legal, a complex web of restrictions limit access.
Twelve states restrict the coverage of abortion in private insurance plans and 33 states and D.C. do not cover abortion in their Medicaid programs, with extremely limited exceptions.
Now, more than ever, Congress must take action to expand coverage and access to abortion care—not pass additional bans or restrictions. Please contact your member of Congress today. Every person, no matter where they live or how much money they make, deserves to be able to access the health care they need.
