Petition to

Demand the Senate to Pass The Women's Health Protection ACT of 2021

Unfortunately, we have arrived at that moment in our generation's lifetime when the US Supreme Court is signaling it will be overturning the law of the land for the last fifty years, Roe v. Wade. We are on the verge of witnessing our sisters, daughters, granddaughters, nieces, friends, and spouses having fewer healthcare rights than we do right now. As disgusting and disappointing as this may be, now is the time to stand up together and hear our voices on what we want our ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES to do as employees in the PEOPLES' government. It is time to make Roe v. Wade the law of the land, and Congress must protect this vital and private healthcare decision between a person and their doctor without government overreach. Please sign this petition and show your support for the Women's Health Protection Act of 2021, sitting in the Senate. To learn more about the bill or to follow along with next step actions, follow us at @livinforhumanity Women's Health Protection Act of 2021: Protects a person’s ability to determine whether to continue or end a pregnancy and protects a health care provider’s ability to provide abortion services. This bill prohibits governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, abortion services. Specifically, governments may not limit a provider's ability to prescribe certain drugs, offer abortion services via telemedicine, or immediately provide abortion services when the provider determines a delay risks the patient's health.  Furthermore, governments may not require a provider to -perform unnecessary medical procedures,-provide medically inaccurate information,-comply with credentialing or other conditions that do not apply to providers whose services are medically comparable to abortions, orcarry out all services connected to an abortion. In addition, governments may not (1) require patients to make medically unnecessary in-person visits before receiving abortion services or disclose their reasons for obtaining such services, or (2) prohibit abortion services before fetal viability or after fetal viability when a provider determines the pregnancy risks the patient's life or health. The bill also prohibits other governmental measures that are similar to the bill's specified restrictions or that otherwise single out and impede access to abortion services, unless a government demonstrates that the measure significantly advances the safety of abortion services or health of patients and cannot be achieved through less restrictive means. The Department of Justice, individuals, or providers may bring a lawsuit to enforce this bill, and states are not immune from suits for violations. The bill applies to restrictions imposed both prior and subsequent to the bill's enactment. The power of the people is stronger than the people in power!  With Love & Grace, Livin For Humanity
