As we celebrate the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment, there is still a lot to be done for women’s rights.
The Supreme Court recently ruled in June Medical Services LLC v. Russo that a law requiring mandatory emergency room admitting privileges for abortion physicians in Louisiana is unconstitutional. Although the 5-4 ruling was an immediate relief for reproductive rights, it is hardly a long-term victory. That’s why we all need to get behind the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2019.
