The Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 2975/S. 1645) is federal legislation that would protect abortion access from the state-level bans and medically unnecessary restrictions that are currently reducing or eliminating access to care across the country. On February 12, 2020, the House Committee on Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Health held a hearing on WHPA. NCLR led the drafting and submission of testimony on behalf of numerous LGBTQ organizations in support of the bill.
