Representative Mike Doyle: Support Women's Health

According to the most recent figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the amount of legal abortions performed in 2014 was 926,190. Since the victorious ruling in the case of Roe v. Wade in 1973 which affirmed the legality of a woman’s right to obtain an abortion under the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, there has been a steady decline in abortion rates with a significant drop over the past 25 years. From 1990 to 2014 alone, there was a decrease in the provision of abortion services of 42.4% according to The Guttmacher Institute. It is evident that the availability of safe, legal abortion services does not encourage women to seek abortions, but rather allows them to do so if they wish in a way that does not place them in danger.
The Women's Health Protection Act of 2017, H.R. 1322, is a bill that aims to limit the restrictions on the provision of abortion services in the United States by regulating the occurrence of Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws that place an undue burden on women seeking abortions, no matter their reasoning.
Today, I am asking you to you sign this petition and urge Representative Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania's 14th congressional district to stand with and for women across the nation and say that H.R. 1322 is a bill that we not only want, but one that we desperately need in order to protect the right for women to determine whether and when to bear a child or end a pregnancy. The women in your lives are depending on you. Will you fight to protect their basic human rights?
