SB456 Passes through GA Senate - The Fight is Not Over!

Today, the GA senate voted in favor of #SB456 and we are now looking to have the GA House support this as well. While the Women’s Health Protection Act didn’t pass in the senate yesterday we are hopeful that Georgia will make the right decision.These decisions deprive low income women , disabled women and Black women, femmes and girls of access to abortion and critical reproductive medical care. The fight for Women’s rights has always been on the table and we will not back down! Women Engaged is asking for all individuals to contact their Representatives and demand they stand for #ReproHealth. We must vote NO on this bill to protect the lives of Women’s Health. The fight is not over, it's just beginning!”

Statement on the Vote of the Women's Health Protection Act

“In the past few years, America has assaulted women’s right to choose, and today, Congress has chosen to restrict comprehensive protection for women’s reproductive rights. We are disappointed the Women’s Health Protection Act didn’t pass in the Senate today, leaving many states and by extension, women across the country, vulnerable to abortion bans, especially as Roe v. Wade continues to lie in the balance. These decisions deprive poor women and Black women of access to abortion and critical reproductive medical care. As aggressive abortion measures hang in the balance with a conservative-leaning Supreme Court, the future of women’s bodily autonomy and agency are under unprecedented threat. Women Engaged will continue to fight for women’s rights to safe access to abortion and other reproductive healthcare services.”

We demand that the United States Congress pass and enforce a bill outlawing coerced sterilizations and forced medical procedures on detained and incarcerated people by federal law enforcement agencies and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

The recent news of the violations at Irwin Detention Center is a continuation of attacks of our bodily autonomy rooted inhumane practices that date back to slavery. If it were not for the bravery of Dawn Wooten, a black woman, who stepped up and reported what was happening we would not be aware this was occurring in our own backyard.
