Access & Coverage
  • A bipartisan group of senators introduced legislation that would codify abortion rights into federal law. The bill aims to prevent states from enacting laws that impose an undue burden on access to pre-viability abortions and allow some limits on post-viability abortions. However, it does not define viability or what constitutes when a mother’s health is in danger. The bill also ensure access to contraception and includes a conscience clause. It is unclear if the Senate will bring the bill to the floor. (Articles here, here, and here)
