United for Abortion Coverage Week of Action! (September 25 – October 1)
Did you know that September 30, 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the Hyde Amendment — a federal ban that denies abortion coverage to individuals enrolled in federal health care plans and programs? Hyde has a disproportionate impact on low-income women, who are disproportionately women of color, young women, immigrants, and transgender or gender-nonconforming people. That’s unacceptable! Everyone has the right to make their own decision about abortion, regardless of how much money they make or what insurance they hold.
That’s why NCJW is united with All* Above All to#BeBoldEndHyde! We’re work had to advance coverage for abortion every day, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the United for Abortion Coverage Week of Action!
Want to get involved? Take a photo to show your commitment to abortion coverage for all!
