Congratulations to Patty Weber, our State Policy Chair, for her recent letter which was published by the Portland Press Herald September 29, 2016. Patty wrote in support of the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act. This legislation would end federal bans on abortion coverage. For the past 40 years, the Hyde Amendment has denied abortion coverage to individuals enrolled in most federal health plans and programs. The Hyde Amendment is particularly harmful to low-income women, women of color, young people and immigrants who disproportionately rely on Medicaid for their health care coverage.
