Boston Review Op-ed: “WHPA represents a distinctly intersectional approach”

In a recent opinion piece published in the Boston Review, Rachel Rebouché, Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Research at Temple University Beasley School of Law, wrote in support of the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) and the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH) Act.

Rebouché wrote that WHPA is remarkable, “because of the commitments to reproductive justice that it articulates and draws together. WHPA represents a distinctly intersectional approach; it acknowledges that not all people who become pregnant identify as women. The bill embraces the idea that abortion care is a public health issue deeply connected with economic and racial justice. These acknowledgements are major steps forward. The bill does not merely aim to codify Roe, but also foregrounds the lessons learned since the decision.”
