Did you know that in the past two years there have been about TWO HUNDRED restrictions made by legislators to make it harder for women to make their own decisions about their body?
Some states have stricter restrictions and laws than others, so the Women’s Health Protection Act is a bill that’s designed to protect women’s reproductive rights, no matter what state they live in. In order to show politicians that women’s bodies belong to women, not Washington, you can sign the petition, write to your representatives, and spread awareness on social media. Because women’s rights are human rights.
