Catholics for Choice submits this testimony in unequivocal support of the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act of 2019 (HR 1692/S 758) and urges the Committee to advance this important legislation.
The EACH Woman Act allows us to uphold our call as Catholics to treat every person, no matter their station, with dignity, respect and compassion. This is why a majority of Catholics believe that insurance plans, whether government or private, should include coverage for contraceptives and abortion care. We support the EACH Woman Act because it reinforces the principles of social justice we are taught and enables the most vulnerable people to access the reproductive health services and medications they need. EACH Woman empowers each person to make the conscience-based decisions that are best for themselves and their family.
