Call Senate NOW – Pass the Women’s Health Protection Act

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has filed cloture on the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021 (WHPA), setting up a critical Senate vote when senators return on Monday, February 28th. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), would establish in federal statutes the right to receive abortion care, free from harmful bans and unnecessary restrictions that single out abortion and impede access to care. The law would override any Supreme Court ruling limiting access or banning abortion outright and would prohibit any state law that impinges on a person’s exercise of this fundamental right to control one’s reproductive life.
