Ahead of Kevin McCarthy speech, The Pavlovic Today obtained a White House memo from Jen Klein on the impact of Senator Graham’s proposed abortion ban, and a letter from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists on the impact it will have on those seeking abortion care.
Republican officials’ agenda for women in America
- September 2022: Senator Graham introduces a national abortion ban.
- September 2022: House Republicans propose a pharmacy bill denying women essential medications.
- As of September 2022: 123 House Republicans signed onto the Heartbeat Protection Bill, which would decide abortion at the federal level, even though 28 of its co-sponsors have since said abortion is a states’ rights issue.
Last week, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) introduced a national abortion ban that would criminalize the provision of abortion services after 15 weeks with limited exceptions. Below is the memo written by Jennifer Klein, Director of the Gender Policy Council.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) wrote a letter to President Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris. In their letter, they say that since the Dobbs came into effect adolescent survivors of sexual assault have been “unable to receive needed abortion care” in their states.
HHS’ guidance is available here to help avoid situations where pharmacies could deny women their medication
