Keep Up the Fight for Reproductive Rights

Hadassah has and always will unequivocally stand for women’s reproductive rights and empowering women with the knowledge to make critical health decisions for themselves and their families.

On February 28, in a vote of 46-48, the Senate failed to move the Women’s Health Protection Act forward – further jeopardizing reproductive health access across the country. The Supreme Court heard challenges to two state laws this session and a major decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is expected later this year.

Restricting access to reproductive health care presents an immediate and urgent threat to women's health and women's rights. Now is the time to speak out and stand strong! Learn about Hadassah’s efforts and get involved.

Energize. Strategize. Mobilize.

1. Contact Your State and Federal Legislators
Urge your state and federal legislators to safeguard reproductive rights and ensure women’s health is a top priority.  
Efforts to further restrict women’s access to reproductive health services are surging, with 15 states passing dozens of new laws in 2021 alone. Tell state policymakers to oppose abortion bans as well as onerous and medically unnecessary requirements placed on patients, physicians and service providers.
