Everyone deserves to live their healthiest lives regardless of their age, income, insurance coverage, or zip code. We work for comprehensive sex education, protections for pregnant workers, access to family planning providers like Planned Parenthood, and defending and improving Americans’ access to health care services. We also raise awareness about the violence and harassment reproductive health care providers face.
We work to ensure that everyone can live their healthiest lives no matter where they live.
We support the rights of our patients throughout their pregnancy. No one should have to choose between their job and a healthy pregnancy, which is why we fight for proactive legislation like the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act to protect pregnant patients in the workplace.
The current Congress has repeatedly attempted to roll back the gains of the Affordable Care Act, a disastrous effort that could leave tens of millions of people without health insurance and countless others without adequate coverage, as well as decimating Medicaid and defunding Planned Parenthood. We have worked to stop the passage of these repeal bills, and will continue to oppose any legislation that creates barriers to care. It’s time to expand and improve, not limit, Americans’ access to health care services.
Every day, doctors, nurses, counselors, administrators, security guards, and volunteers put their lives on the line to provide comprehensive reproductive health care. Eleven people, including members of the Physicians community like Dr. George Tiller, have been murdered by anti-abortion extremists. This campaign of terror—waged over decades against those who provide this critical care—is reprehensible, and we are trying to end it.
