We, the 135 undersigned organizations committed to civil and human rights, write to urge you to reject any appropriations bills that contain riders that would restrict access to essential health care, including abortion, contraception, and gender-affirming care, whether delivered in-person or via telehealth. We are united in our belief that all people should be able to access the care they need, and to make informed decisions about their own bodies and lives. As such, we were appalled to see language limiting access to these services, both directly and by targeting organizations that provide such care, in the fiscal year (FY) 2024 appropriations bills, including many new draconian and discriminatory proposals from House appropriators.
