Defunding Laws Would Devastate the Country’s Family-Planning System

On their face, defunding laws appear to simply put parameters on who can participate in public health-care programs and sometimes do not even mention abortion providers by name. However, the truth of the matter is that disqualifying abortion providers from participating in major health-care programs can cause clinics to shutter their doors and ultimately reduce the number of sites available for women to get all types of medical care. These laws are designed to protect anti-choice lawmakers from the political backlash of banning abortion directly and sadly, have proven successful in many states.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
