Letter: Fighting for Women’s Rights

It is is time to pay attention to the serious threats to women’s rights that are taking place in our state and across the nation. At stake are fundamental liberties that affect everyone, not just women. #

At least 39 state legislatures in recent session and the US Congress have proposed laws restricting women's basic health care rights.

Among them: #*

Allowing employers to fire women who use contraception.

#*Denying insurance coverage for contraception.

#*Requiring doctors to lie to women about established medical facts.

Employees to fire women who use contraception.

#*Prohibiting malpractice suits against doctors who lie to women about the health of a fetus.

#*Forcing women to carry a fetus to term even if it will be stillborn or threatens the mother's health.

#*Requiring women to have invasive, medically unnecessary procedures which they have to pay for out of pocket.

#*Criminalizing miscarriage and abortion.

#*Taking funding away from organizations that provide the full range of health services to poor women.

#"Personhood" legislation that elevates the rights of a single cell over that of existing human beings.
