Legislative Update – November 2019
Opportunities and Challenges in Supporting Families
HOUSE AND SENATE LEADERS RESPONSE TO HHS OFFICE OF CIVIL RIGHTS ANNOUNCEMENT
We object to the Trump Administration’s persistent efforts to limit women’s access to reproductive healthcare. Their recent cherry-picked enforcement action against the University of Vermont Medical Center is nothing more than an ideological stunt intended to intimidate medical providers around the country.
We have reviewed UVMMC’s detailed policies which promote safe, legal and high quality medical care, while also protecting their employees’ right to opt out of procedures they object to on ethical or religious grounds.
When the dust settles, this episode will register as just one more lowlight in President Trump’s war on women.
