A health care provider’s personal beliefs should never dictate health care. Yet the federal Weldon Amendment allows personal beliefs, not patient health or the standard of care, to determine the care a patient receives.

For too long, the Weldon Amendment has prioritized personal beliefs over patient care and has served as a looming threat to states and localities seeking to protect access to abortion. Now, the threat is no longer theoretical – the Trump-Pence Administration weaponized the Weldon Amendment in unprecedented ways to penalize state actors that protect abortion access, and to deny patients access to critical care.
