Goldman pushes Abortion Care Awareness Act to protect women’s access to abortion pills amid court challenges

As reproductive rights throughout the country remain under attack and subject to court challenges, U.S. Rep. Dan Goldman announced at Planned Parenthood’s Manhattan Health Center on Monday the introduction of the Abortion Care Awareness Act. 

The proposal of the bill comes after a judge in Texas ruled to take the abortion pill mifepristone off the market. According to the FDA, mifepristone is a drug that blocks a hormone called progesterone that is needed for a pregnancy to continue.
