Linda Sánchez Supports Safe Healthcare for Women

Statement

By:

Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Linda Sánchez released the following statement today after opposing H.R. 3541, the Prenatal Nondiscrimation Act, which jeopardizes a woman's right to safe and legal health care services.

"This misguided bill not only infringes on a woman's right to choose, but it increases the health disparities that already exist among minority women, erodes the trust that exists between a woman and her doctor, and denies women quality access to healthcare. This bill does nothing to curb discrimination based on race and gender, but rather, imposes additional barriers for women who want to make informed decisions about their health and criminalizes the doctors who provide care to them."
