KC Miller, President of Keystone Coalition for Advancing Sex Education, released the following statement in response to the 20-week abortion bill (HR36) passed by the House of Representatives today:
"It is extremely disturbing to hear the House of Representatives decided to prioritize an attack on women's rights and a limitation on reproductive health care over the millions of people across our nation who have been left in tragedy during the past few weeks. Countless Americans are left without food, water, and shelter after a record setting hurricane season — which isn't even over. Our nation just experienced the biggest mass shooting American history in Las Vegas. Yet, the GOP congress decided to focus on an abortion ban that puts women at serious risk. Shame on this congress."
