Today is the anniversary of the Hyde Amendment, which unfairly targets low-income people’s access to abortion.
Taken together with previous research, our findings suggest that for a woman to consider her pregnancy options, make an informed decision about whether or not to terminate a pregnancy, and access the care she chooses, we must repeal the Hyde Amendment. Every woman should be able to make the best decision for her health and life regardless of her income, insurance status, or personal circumstances. The Hyde Amendment and its exceptions only harm women and interfere with their personal decision making.
