Policy Updates

Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) update: In 2021, the US House passed WHPA but it was NOT passed by the US Senate in a recent vote on 2/28/2022. 

Meanwhile, the Texas 6 week abortion ban has been in place for over 200 days and states across the country have proposed copycat bills with Idaho being the first state to have its own TX copycat ban pass through their legislature.

The Texas abortion ban (SB 8) has been in effect for nearly 150 days and counting and Alabama’s legislature has introduced a copycat bill (HB 23) that’s modeled after the TX ban. The Deep South is already living in a post-Roe reality and it doesn’t matter what the courts decide until abortion is federally protected.
