Rae Vogeler on Abortion

 


Women have the right to control their bodies

Women have the right to control their bodies. Safe, legal abortion must be available as an option to all women. The "morning-after" pill must be affordable and easily accessible without a prescription, together with a government-sponsored public relations campaign to educate women about this form of contraception. Clinics must be accessible and must offer advice on contraception and the performance of abortions. Reproductive choices should not be limited by a women's age or marital status.

Require health insurance to cover contraception and abortion

Require health insurance to cover contraception and abortion. Government should offer these services free of charge to women at the poverty level. Public health agencies operating abroad should be allowed to offer family planning, contraception, and abortion in all countries that ask for those services.

Require abortion-related medical services for women

Require medical services for women. Pharmacists and other health providers are increasing denying contraceptives and other reproductive services to women. Such services are a woman's right, and should not be limited by medical providers.

Reinstate family planning aid in foreign aid

Reinstate family planning aid. Restore funding that the U.S. government has stopped providing to agencies in foreign countries that give out contraceptive devices, offer advice on abortion, and perform abortions.

Defend reproductive rights

Defend reproductive rights: Women have a right to control their bodies. To do so, they need affordable access to safe family planning services. The decision about when to have a child, and how many children to have is a personal choice.
