- RMC Files SCOTUS Brief!
RMC began 2016 with big news-- it officially filed its first amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court!
This brief will now be part of the deliberations when the nation's highest Court hears arguments in Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole. This case involves restrictions that block access to safe, legal abortion and threaten to close family planning clinics that provide vital, preventive reproductive health care. Current and former Republican officeholders from across the nation joined RMC in filing the brief in calling on the US Supreme Court to uphold the Constitutional protections of liberty and privacy.

Time to drop the double standard over abortion
RMC National Board Chairs highlight the double standard over abortion in the Republican Party in a new op-ed on CNN.
"As Republicans, we have an abiding belief that the government which governs least, governs best. Yet it is hard to reconcile this with the beliefs of many in our party who support government intrusion into personal decisions about when and whether to have children. States with majority Republican legislatures continue to throw up roadblocks in the form of excessive regulations on physicians and clinics that perform abortions, as well as the methods and accessibility of contraception."
