Take Brave Action: Participate in the United for Abortion Coverage Week of Action

we-are-united-wednesday-faith-090216For 40 years, politicians have used the Hyde Amendment, which denies coverage for abortion for those insured through Medicaid, to interfere in women’s health decisions. For those struggling to make ends meet—including people of color, low-income women, young people, and immigrants—a coverage ban might as well be a ban on abortion altogether.

In the last week of September—to mark the 40th year of the Hyde Amendment—people around the country are uniting to take brave action against abortion coverage bans. When it comes to the most important decisions in life, such as whether to become a parent, it is vital that a woman be able to exercise her moral agency, regardless of her income or insurance plan.

During the last week of September (September 25-October 1), the Religious Institute is calling religious leaders and people of faith to join reproductive justice advocates nationwide by participating in the “United for Abortion Coverage Week of Action.” Below you can find more information about how your faith community can #BeBoldEndHyde. Don’t hesitate to contact the Religious Institute for further assistance.
