Statement on the Passage of HR7

Advocates for Youth is disgusted and outraged by the misogynistic and misguided politicians who yesterday passed HR 7 in the House of Representatives.  HR7 expands existing bans on insurance coverage for abortion, placing low income women and young people at highest risk.  “Policies that restrict women’s access to safe, affordable abortion  care only push women further and further into the back alleys of yesteryear, putting all of our daughters and granddaughters in grave danger”, said Deb Hauser, President of Advocates for Youth. “The suffering, sepsis and deaths that will result as ideologues continue on this reckless course of action will fall clearly at the feet of these men.”
