Please take a moment to ask your representative to vote yes on the Women’s Health Protection Act. It would protect the right to abortion throughout the United States, rendering unenforceable medically unnecessary and burdensome restrictions against abortion passed by state legislatures.
After the Supreme Court shockingly refused to block the Texas law banning abortions after six weeks even in cases of rape and incest, this act is more important than ever. While court reform is clearly crucial to protecting constitutional rights, the immediate remedy is for Congress to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act. Now that the House Committee on Rules has agreed to put it to a floor vote this Friday, Sept. 24, it is more important than ever to get this passed.
Please urge your member of Congress to vote yes on the Women’s Health Protection Act so we can curb many of the abuses that will inevitably follow the Texas law. The lives of millions of women depend on our secular action, since religion has always been at the heart of the push for anti-choice legislation.

Please vote in favor of the Women’s Health Protection Act (HR 3755). The shocking enactment of an unconstitutional abortion ban in Texas, with the Supreme Court refusing to intervene, is a wake-up call that immediate action is required to protect access to safe and legal abortions. Abortion rights are already endangered in many states, and the Texas law will inspire even more bans.
The Women’s Health Protection Act would guarantee a statutory right to safe, legal reproductive care, and would void medically unnecessary and burdensome measures. I ask you to vote yes on the bill’s floor vote, and to speak up for its immediate passage. Millions of women — and their rights and safety — depend on your action.
