Just a few moments ago we learned that the Trump Administration is rolling back protections on birth control coverage for millions of women. This comes just a few days after House Republicans passed a ridiculous 20-week abortion ban.
I am sick and tired of politicians playing politics with our health care and going out of their way to target women in the process. We deserve better, which is why I’m asking you to take action today:
I’ve spent my career in public office fighting those who want to roll back decades’ worth of progress on women’s health and reproductive freedom.
Together we fought to require employers to provide employees with no-cost coverage for contraception and 55 million American women benefitted.
Together we advanced legislation in California to ensure that so-called crisis pregnancy centers provide women with accurate information about the full range of reproductive services available to them, including abortion.
Together we defeated every attempt by Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood this year, and we’re never going to stop fighting to make sure those doors stay open.
Now is the time we must keep fighting to defend and expand on the progress made for women’s rights and reproductive health, not fall backward.
Thanks for all you do.
U.S. Senator, California
