Message from National NOW President Christian F. Nunes


Happy Friday Feminists,


Next week, Congress will reintroduce the Women’s Health Protection Act. 


We are quickly approaching a year since women’s reproductive rights were decimated by the Supreme Court, so this measure is an important step to put us back on the right direction. But this also comes at a pivotal time with so many states picking up where SCOTUS left off, pushing extremely dangerous policies that completely disregard protecting women’s health.  


We have reached such a tipping point that some places will no longer offer childbirth services because too many OBGYNs can’t navigate the overwhelming labyrinth of restrictions that so many of these bans impose on medical providers.  


“Every American deserves the freedom to make their own health care decisions without interference from politicians…,” said Senator Tammy Baldwin. “The Women’s Health Protection Act is a necessary step to restore Americans’ constitutional right to choose what’s best for their families and allow doctors to do the job they are trained to do – all free from medically unnecessary restrictions.” 


Laws are meant to protect American citizens, yet there are too many ill-conceived, repugnant laws that put more than half of the population in danger. The WHPA is vital to ensuring that these state and national leaders can’t get away with these outrageous attacks on our bodily autonomy. 


In solidarity,
