Fact: abortion coverage restrictions like the Hyde amendment are harmful no matter where they are written, whether in the SGR or annual appropriation legislation. The amount of money a woman has or doesn’t have should not prohibit her from having an abortion. Yet, in an unconscionable expansion to this policy, the language in Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act denies a woman’s health coverage just because she is a survivor of trafficking. Contact your representative and urge them to stand STRONG against attacks on reproductive health care! We should not let politicians push safe and affordable abortion care out of reach. #StopHyding #digaNOaHyde

As we approach the end of Hispanic Heritage Month,
In conjunction with this year's Latina Week of Action for Reproductive Justice, we'll be hosting a blog carnival. Last year we asked you all to answer the question "What's your contraception story?" and the responses were incredible. This year, during the week of August 1-5, we'll be asking members of our community to answer the question "What's the real problem?" when it comes to how immigrant women are treated.
A framework released through our white paper and subsequent campaign about young Latinas and healthy pregnancies, the What's the Real Problem? framework asks us to examine what's really behind the targeting of immigrant women in our communities. The legislation, dialogue and rhetoric focus on the lives and choices of the women in our communities, but we know the problem is much deeper and likely systemic rather than individual.
For this year's blog carnival we invite you to join us in answering the question, What's the Real Problem? In regards to immigration and specifically how immigrant women are treated.
To join the blog carnival, simply post your response to this question and email your link to email@example.com by August 5th. We will include all posts in round-ups on our blog, website and email newsletter.
