The Obama Administration officially announced today that it is taking action to rescind a harmful Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rule.
The following is a statement by Marcia D. Greenberger, Co-President of the National Women’s Law Center:
“The Obama administration deserves great praise for its move today to rescind this harmful rule, which serves only to undermine patients’ access to vital health care services and information, and poses especially grave risks to women’s health and lives.
“Americans have made it clear that they support a commonsense approach to reproductive health care that ensures that women have access to contraception and other much-needed services and information. We look forward to working with the Obama Administration on developing and expanding health care policies that meet the needs of women and their families.”
