Employer mandated no-cost birth control - gone.
The SCOTUS' recent rulings will negatively impact women & their families. Legislators in PA & DC are moving fast to impose even greater restrictions on access to reproductive health care & abortion care. Some legislators in the PA Senate are hoping to score political points at the expense of Pennsylvania women:

  • Most recently, legislation requiring our abortion providers to have admitting privileges to a hospital within 30 miles was introduced. We need your voices to be heard. This does not make abortion safer for our patients; it is designed to put us out of business.
  • In June 2013, Gov. Corbett signed HB 818 into law, prohibiting private insurance companies that plan to sell healthcare plans through Pennsylvania's state health insurance exchange from covering abortion, even in cases of medical emergency, health of the mother, and severe fetal anomaly. 
  • In December 2011, Senate Bill 732 was signed into law by Governor Corbett. This bill forces free-standing abortion providers to be regulated as Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (ASF) which require burdensome and unnecessary structural and staffing changes. This bill is not about patient safety but instead is aimed at making abortion inaccessible in Pennsylvania.
