REPEAL THE HELMS AMENDMENT
THE HELMS AMENDMENT
The Helms Amendment is a dangerous barrier to safe abortion for people around the world. This deadly policy hinders millions of people from being able to exercise their reproductive rights and deprives them of the care they want and need. It reduces the availability of safe, legal abortion, denies health-care providers life-saving equipment and training, and has resulted in the unwarranted censoring of critical health information.
Call on your members of Congress NOW and urge them to support the Abortion Is Health Care Everywhere Act to repeal this deadly policy.
