Congress cuts DC Medicaid abortion coverage

During last week’s budget standoff, we saw congressional leaders fight over giving women the health care services that they need and deserve. This fight was not about saving money, but rather a harsh political tactic driven by anti-choice members of Congress.

A compromise was reached, but at what cost?

Congress has yet again thrown away the rights of DC women, and Friday’s budget deal included a rider to reinstate a ban on taxpayer funding of abortions in the District of Columbia.  Just as they always have, anti-abortion lawmakers will further their agendas on the backs of DC women.

We are outraged.

We MUST fight back. Stand up for the women of DC by supporting our work with a generous donation today. It is critical that we boost our fund since the need for DCAF grants will increase, and we can’t sustain our work supporting women without you.

Please donate to DCAF today so we can help women in DC pay for the abortion services they need and deserve.
