- 5-3 Supreme Court Victory!
The United States Supreme Court struck down the unconstitutional Texas law HB2 limiting access to abortion and family planning. The 5-3 ruling is the most significant decision from the Supreme Court on abortion in decades and should serve as a wake up call that misguided laws aimed solely at limiting access to family planning will not stand.
This landmark decision continues the powerful momentum shift for the rights and personal medical choices of women and families. As our National Co-Chair Susan Bevan said on the steps of the Supreme Court “…Government must protect this right and cannot mandate a singular “moral” code or particular set of religious beliefs,” said Bevan. “No matter how deeply legislators hold those individual views, their position does not grant them license to impose their beliefs upon American citizens. Facts matter – and laws matter.”

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."
