Don't pass the Hyde Amendment. Safe abortions should be available to women of all income levels, and this right must be guaranteed by federal funding. It's the worst form of disrespect to assume that women make the decision to abort their fetus lightly. It's an agonizing responsibility that women take incredibly seriously. Women who have been raped, whose health is endangered by their pregnancy, or who are carrying a child with serious birth defects deserve the right to choose whether to terminate their pregnancy because they bear the consequences of that decision.
