Executive Director Rachel Berkson & Former City Councilmember Judy Nicastro On Hobby Lobby
"Last week's Supreme Court decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby left us dismayed, furious, and determined to push back. As advocates of reproductive rights, we believe strongly that women’s basic human rights should come before a corporation’s objections, however sincerely held they may be. This decision sets a dangerous precedent and codifies discrimination against women—it’s a blow to our rights that we simply can’t afford and must resist." Read their full editorial at The Stranger.

"Today's ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby is nothing more than discrimination against women. This decision devalues all women and our right to the health care that's best for us and our families." Read our full statement.

State Senate Democrats Hold Briefing On the Reproductive Parity Act
With two weeks left in the legislative session and no official Senate hearing scheduled for the RPA, Senate Democratic leaders have taken the lead in working to educate their colleagues on Washington’s shifting health care landscape, and key changes that have occurred since the RPA was last introduced. Presenters at the briefing will include concerned consumers, stakeholders within the insurance industry, health care providers, and others. Read full media advisory.
State House of Representatives Passes Reproductive Parity Act

Today, the State House of Representatives passed the Reproductive Parity Act (RPA), which would protect access to comprehensive reproductive health care in Washington by requiring that insurance companies that cover maternity care also cover abortion. The legislation passed with a vote of 54-44 and now moves on to the State Senate, where in 2013 the Republican-controlled Majority Coalition Caucus refused to allow a floor vote despite claims of bipartisanship and moderation. Read full press release.
