Policy Updates


Since 1976 the Hyde Amendment has prohibited people from using federal funds to cover abortion care. That includes folks who use Medicaid, federal employees, people in federal prisons, military members, and more.
Recently the U.S. House of Representatives re-introduced the EACH Act, which ends the Hyde Amendment and guarantees insurance coverage for abortion throughout federal agencies, including Medicaid.


A nationwide ban on Mifepristone would affect abortion access in EVERY state. Mifepristone has been FDA approved for over 20 years and it has been used by millions of Americans to successfully end their pregnancies. Now we could see a nationwide ban on Mifepristone: a Trump-appointed judge in Texas will be ruling on a lawsuit challenging the FDA approval of Mife, which would affect abortion access in ALL 50 states.

Advocacy Action Alert: Take Action Against a Nationwide Abortion Ban!

Sen. Lindsey Graham has introduced a nationwide abortion ban in the US Senate that would ban ALL abortions past 15 weeks in the U.S.

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.
