The battle over whether lawmakers and business owners should be able to make women’s health care decisions for them rages on, with local politicians stepping in to mandate pre-abortion procedures while national politicians argue that government can’t force businesses or religious institutions to provide birth control against their will.
But the National Women’s Law Center is ready to join the fray with a new campaign. “Lawmakers in Congress and across the country have erected dangerous hurdles for women to jump over to get the reproductive health care they need,” said Marcia D. Greenberger, Co-President of the National Women’s Law Center. “But women are fighting back. They drew a line in the sand in Mississippi, defeating a fetal personhood amendment, and in Virginia, blocking a harmful ultrasound bill. This powerful outcry should serve as a warning to overreaching politicians everywhere. Women will not sit back and allow politicians to continue to jeopardize women’s health. Women everywhere are mobilizing to tell their lawmakers: our health is NOT up for debate!”
