NWLC Responds to Senate Failing to Pass S.311

The following is a statement by Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC):

“The Trump-Pence Administration has made clear its goal is to outlaw abortion and punish women for getting them by any means necessary. This bill – built on inflammatory falsehoods – targeted abortion providers and dangerously interfered with the patient-provider relationship. It should have never seen the light of day, but some Senators pushed it simply to score political points. Enough is enough. These sustained attacks based on a wholly false narrative regarding abortion care are harmful to the health and lives of patients and providers. They must stop for good.”
