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.”
