Women's health is STILL under attack in Pennsylvania
It's 2013 and women's health, namely abortion and family planning, are still the focal point of political attacks in Pennsylvania and across the country. Shockingly, from January 2011 to January 2012, the Pennsylvania Legislature voted 55 times to restrict a woman's access to reproductive health care including safe, legal abortion. And they kept going.
The battle for access to safe, legal, and affordable reproductive health care has continued in 2013. In June 2013, Gov. Corbett signed Senate Bill 3/House Bill 818 into law, banning abortion coverage in the Pennsylvania health exchanges. In December 2011, Act 122 (formerly Senate Bill 732) was signed into law and was the precursor to the introduction of many terrifying measures aimed at restricting access to safe, legal abortion in Pennsylvania.
In 2012, we saw attacks in the state legislature including mandatory ultrasound and the defunding of family planning providers.
While there was a momentous victory for women's healthcare in June 2012
when the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and with the Birth Control coverage provision under the ACA, there have been multiple attacks since that illustrate that access to reproductive health care for Pennsylvania women is still under major threat.
We see right through these legislators' anti-choice, anti-women tactics, and enough is enough.
