LWV ON HEALTH CARE & REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

LWV Position Statement: "Women's Reproductive Health - The League believes in the constitutional right to privacy, and trusts women to make their own reproductive health care decisions. We support the inclusion of reproductive health care, including birth control and abortion coverage, in any health benefits package. We believe that denying women access to health care services because of ill-defined religious or moral objections is discrimination based on sex. We actively oppose attempts to repeal the reproductive health services provided under the Affordable Care Act."
