National Partnership Letter to Preserve Teen Access to Contraception; Oppose Vitter Ammendments to FY08 Labor HHS Appropriations

The National Partnership for Women & Families strongly urges you to oppose any amendments to the FY 2008 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education appropriations bill filed by Senator David Vitter (R-LA) intended to render health clinics that provide abortion care with non-federal dollars, under almost all circumstances, ineligible for funding through the bill.


Comments submitted by the Coalition

The undersigned organizations are writing to strongly object to the “Provider Conscience” regulation proposed on August 26, 2008 by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The proposed regulation is unnecessary, threatens to significantly undermine patients’ access to critical health care services and information, and could negatively impact scientific research.


Coalition Letter Opposing Nomination of D. Michael Fisher

We the undersigned women’s rights, civil rights, and human rights organizations write to express our strong opposition to the confirmation of D. Michael Fisher to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

The Supreme Court and Abortion Access

The 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, appeared to ensure that American women would have access to abortion, ruling out any legislative interference in the first trimester of pregnancy and putting limits on abortion restrictions that could be passed during the later stages of pregnancy. The decision followed a long history of women seeking and obtaining abortions – but with a shift in the legal status of the procedure over time.
