WASHINGTON, DC — Today, the Blueprint for Sexual and Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice, representing more than 100 bold, progressive organizations, published a full-page ad in the Washington Post highlighting top priorities for the Biden-Harris administration to swiftly expand access to sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice. The ad highlights actions from the Blueprint First Priorities, which are among the most pressing needs to improve reproductive health, rights, and justice — including abortion access — in the U.S. and around the world.
