Congress, drop the nationwide abortion ban bill

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives

Petition Statement

We urge Congress to reject the 20-week abortion ban (HR 1797) and commit to policies that truly protect women's health, including access to safe abortion care.
There are currently 1,235 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background


A nationwide ban on abortion after 20 weeks is under debate in Congress, even though an appeals court has only recently called one such ban "blatantly unconstitutional." These pointless theatrics waste time and do nothing to protect women's health.

Research shows that barriers to access only lead to unsafe abortion. If Congress is truly concerned about women's health and safety, they should work on improving access to safe abortion care.

Congress will begin debate soon and could vote as early as this week, so sign the petition now!!
