The decision to have an abortion is a personal one; we don’t know each person’s unique circumstances, but we DO know that every woman should have access to the full range of pregnancy-related care, including abortion care, no matter what her income level, so that she can make the best decisions for herself and her family.

All 50 states may use their state funds to cover abortion services, but DC's decision is overseen by Congress - and Congress routinely overrules DC’s own elected officials and withholds abortion coverage for women in DC.

We believe that Congress should respect DC home rule and that a woman’s ability to access the healthcare she needs shouldn’t depend on where she lives. If you agree, please join our photo petition by posting a photo of yourself holding a sign that says “We Are DC” and includes your name, city and state. We’ll deliver the photos to your members of Congress later this summer.

Take Action Today!

Congress is working to resolve the budget next week, and while we really hope they manage to avoid shutting down the government, we’d also like to remind them that no matter where we live or how much money we make, we all deserve the right to make healthcare decisions for ourselves.

On Sept 26, tell Representative Hal Rogers, chair of the House Appropriations Committee, not to use the budget bill to ban public funding for abortion in DC. Each state has the right to make this decision for itself, and DC should, too.

Please tweet this message:

"We ALL deserve access to healthcare, incl abortion care. @RepHalRogers, don’t ban public funding for abortion in #DC. #WeAreDC"

Last Chance to Stand with DC women →

We are running out of time to tell Congress not to use the budget bill to ban funding for abortion in DC. Thousands of DC residents rely on Medicaid for the health insurance, and DC, like every state, should be able to decide whether and how to fund abortion for them.

If you believe we all deserve access to healthcare - including abortion care - no matter where we live or how much money we make, please support our Thunderclap campaign by donating a tumblr post, facebook status or tweet to tell Congress: #WeAreDC.
