Sign the Petition: Repeal the Hyde Amendment

About one in four women in this country will have an abortion in their lifetime.

They will come from different backgrounds and circumstances, but they all have the right and deserve the freedom to make the decision about what's best for them and their family.

The fundamental right to access reproductive health care is under attack across the country by legislatures emboldened by the shameful law in Texas.

With the ongoing attacks on Roe v. Wade, Congress must act to protect and uphold the freedom to decide whether and when to bear a child. Protecting this freedom is especially important for low-income individuals, young women, rural women, and women of color, who are discriminated against because the Hyde Amendment bans abortion coverage under any government-funded health plan.

Sign the petition: demand Congress repeal the Hyde Amendment and make abortion safe, legal, and affordable.

Earlier this year, the House passed the first spending bill without the Hyde Amendment in more than four decades. But in the Senate, every single Republican voted to restore it.

This is unacceptable.

We must make it abundantly clear that abortion coverage bans are unacceptable. The Hyde Amendment doesn't stop abortions from happening — it makes them less safe.

Sign the petition today: demand that Congress repeal the Hyde Amendment.

I will continue to be an outspoken voice for everyone to be able to access the reproductive healthcare they need.

Thank you for standing with me,

Suzanne Bonamici
