John Walsh, D- Mont., sponsored the Wom- en's Health Protection Act this week to protect women from state restrictions that prevent them from accessing health services and making their own health decisions. The legislation focuses on eliminating burdensome state regulations that are designed to create barriers to family planning services. It will prohibit women from being subjected to unneces- sary tests and procedures or being required to visit a "crisis pregnancy center." "We can't tolerate initia- tives that compromise a woman's fundamental right to make her own health decisions," Walsh said. "The Women's Health Protection Act ensures continued ac- cess to safe and legal health services and removes cur- rent obstacles undermining women's health care." Martha Stahl, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Montana, which provides family planning services and advocates on behalf of women's health options, supports Walsh's work to protect access to women's health services. "Planned Parenthood of Montana applauds Sen. Walsh for supporting the Women's Health Protection Act, a critical tool necessary to combat the state-level at- tacks on a women's access to safe, legal abortion," Stahl said. "Across the United States, we've seen a record number of bills introduced, passed, and signed into law that cut women off from access to safe and legal abortion. This legislation would make it unlawful for politicians to interfere with women's personal health care decisions and would guarantee that a woman's constitutional rights don't depend on her zip code." services' access The Women's Health Protection Act will preserve a woman's right to make her own health care decisions by: Stopping restrictive regu- lations and laws intended to curtail reproductive health services for women Ending burdensome requirements that must be met before care is adminis- tered Prohibiting doctors from prescribing and dispens- ing medically-appropriate medication Preventing restrictions on the medical training doctors and future doctors receive Removing arbitrary regulations for locations of medical facilities and clinics Since 2011, there have been over 100 laws restrict- ing women's accessto health care passed by state legisla- tures across the country.
