"The protections in this measure are more necessary now than ever before in our history because an avalanche of restrictive, reprehensible state laws is drastically reducing fundamental health care rights. The Women's Health Protection Act seeks to strip away the deceptive pretext of safeguarding women's health when the goal of such state laws is actually to sabotage fundamental Constitutional rights, and increasingly they are achieving that goal."
"A woman's rights should not change according to her zip code. Yet that is the reality today when it comes to her right to choose. I am proud to reintroduce the Women's Health Protection Act, which would put an end to the actions taken by states to deny women access to safe and legal abortions. Our laws should put women's health and safety first--not politics."
"In my home state of Wisconsin and in states across the country, politicians have been standing firmly between women and their doctors by enacting a record number of laws restricting their reproductive health choices in an attempt to appease the extreme wing of their party. It is past time to stand up to these radical assaults on women's rights, which is why I am proud to reintroduce the Women's Health Protection Act. Every woman, regardless of where she lives, deserves the freedom to make her own, personal decisions about her health care, her family, and her body."
"Women have a constitutional right to make their own decisions regarding reproductive health. Unfortunately, legislative attacks at the state level have diminished access to essential reproductive care in some parts of the country, including my home state of Ohio. These burdensome and unlawful regulations do nothing to protect a woman's health or safety. I stand with Americans who believe a woman has the right to make her own health decisions in consultation with her family and her health providers, not based on her zip code or the preferences of an interfering politician."
"Every woman deserves the right to make her own health care decisions, no matter what state she lives in."tras
