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 in 2012. Though, in the past decade, the Legislature voted a total of 13 times on these very same issues.
So the battle for access to safe, legal, and affordable reproductive health care continues in 2013. 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.
Last year, we saw attacks in the state legislature including mandatory ultrasound, defunding family planning providers, and abortion bans in the health care exchange. This year, the fight continues over the banning of abortion coverage in private insurance plans in the healthcare exchange.
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 are still
multiple attacks 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.
