This recent post by Christine Salek at PolicyMic illustrates how Washington State has been, and continues to be, a leader and advocate for women's health and choice. Our state's commitment to reproductive rights is unparalleled. But the battle is far from over. Even in a state where reproductive freedom and choice has always been protected, we must never stop striving to stay ahead of the curve in women’s health. Passing the Reproductive Parity Act will maintain Washington State’s status as a leader in reproductive rights, and we must continue to reach across the aisle to do so. As so eloquently noted by State Sen. Steve Litzow, a pro-choice Republican, “Women’s health shouldn’t be a partisan issue.” Well said, Senator. Let’s join together to protect Washington’s women. They deserve our action.
