Respect Connecticut Women’s Health Care

In an op-ed in support of a Hartford city ordinance that would hold crisis pregnancy centers accountable for the medical care they profess to give, doctors Abigail Cutler and Meredith Pensak cited the importance of the Women’s Health Protection Act:

This federal legislation would end state laws that direct doctors to perform tests and procedures that they consider unnecessary before giving women access to to reproductive health services. Doctors would also be able to prescribe and dispense medication as they deem medically appropriate.

Mayor Bronin’s efforts in Hartford and Sen. Blumenthal’s in Washington make women’s health and safety a priority and we urge adoption of the city ordinance and federal law to help to ensure women of Connecticut receive timely, appropriate care from real doctors.
