Once again the UUWF has signed on to a letter urging the President to support women’s reproductive health in Fiscal Year 2016 by omitting all language from his budget request that would restrict access to abortion, most particularly the “Hyde Amendment” which was passed shortly after the Roe V Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide. It has often been assumed to be a permanent ban on federal funding for this medical procedure. On the contrary, it needs to be reintroduced and passed every year.
The Coalition for Abortion Access and Reproductive Equity (CAARE) consists of more than 40 organizations from youth advocacy; reproductive justice, health, and rights; and social justice movements advancing a multi-pronged, long-term strategy to restore and sustain abortion coverage for all women regardless of income.
