No woman should have her pregnancy decision affected by an inability to afford the care she needs. The Reproductive Parity Act would require all insurance plans in Washington state that cover maternity care to also cover abortions, ensuring that women are able to make the decisions that are best for themselves and their families.
For the first time since the bill was originally presented to the legislature more than five years ago, it has been passed by the Senate! The bill also ensures coverage for all FDA-approved contraception, including emergency contraception, without a co-pay.
The Next Step is for the House to move it through! Will you join us at the House Health Care Committee bill hearing on Wednesday morning?
IMPORTANT: Seating will be first come, first served. Please arrive early! The committee session will also feature an important hearing on a bill to protect LGBTQ+ youth from conversion therapy. Anti-LGBTQ and anti-reproductive rights activists are planning to pack the room.
We need to be there to ensure women have the freedom and privacy to make the health care decision best for themselves and their families, and that these decisions aren’t decided by their income, their insurance plan or their employer.
Please show up as early as possible, and dress warmly as we may have to stand in line outside. See you there!
