We are committed to the economic well-being of women and girls.
As advocates for all women, we believe there are few things that are more fundamental to our personhood and economic well-being than the choice as to how and when to start a family. Extensive research shows that access to reproductive health resources is an economic issue that impacts women in every demographic, especially low-income women and women of color.
People hurt most by reproductive health restrictions are those already facing barriers to accessing health care and who are bearing the brunt of the pandemic and economic crisis—particularly Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), women, and those working to make ends meet.
The evidence-based link between reproductive rights and poverty is clear. Research shows the link between unplanned childbearing and its association with higher rates of poverty, less family stability, and worse outcomes for children.
Reproductive Justice is Economic Justice.
Later this month, the U.S. House will vote on the Women’s Health Protection Act to ensure that every woman has safe access to reproductive health care.
We are asking you to contact your U.S. House Representative and urge them to support women’s reproductive rights.
Many of our AZ Congressional Representatives have already co-sponsored the WHPA. We encourage you to contact your U.S. House Representative to either thank them for support, or urging to support, the WHPA. We’ve provided letters to download and fill out based on their stance on WHPA.
