INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:
The ability to make personal health care decisions should not depend on how much money a woman makes or where she gets her health insurance. To fight back against these harmful bans, Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) and Representative Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) introduced the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act of 2019 (S. 758/H.R. 1692). This groundbreaking legislation would put an end to politicians denying women insurance coverage for medical care they need. At its introduction in March 2019, it had 11 original co-sponsors in the Senate and more than 100 original co-sponsors in the House. (Source: National Partnership for Women and Families)
