No woman is free without the ability to choose if and when to start a family. I support repealing the Hyde amendment as abortion care is a simple and safe procedure. However, it becomes unsafe when the situation turns desperate and women aren't able to access the care they need to end an unwanted pregnancy. Women with resources can have their OBGYN preform an abortion and label it a D&C. That's typically covered by insurance. Women of less means have to scramble to come up with the money. Abortion availability should not be a class issue, but it already is. I ask that you propose legislation to end the Hyde amendment rather than strengthen it.
