Event description

Description

Community Conversations on Pregnancy, Parenthood, and Women’s Health is a direct response to several factors that, combined, spell disaster for Pennsylvania families: Pennsylvania’s abysmal track record on key indicators of women’s health; a state Legislature obsessed with restricting access to reproductive healthcare while actively neglecting policy proposals that would improve women’s health and economic security; the Legislature’s refusal to hear testimony from constituents on issues that directly affect their health and lives; and, a regressive federal agenda fixated on restricting access to affordable healthcare.

The Community Conversations are an initiative of the Pennsylvania Campaign for Women’s Health. Founded in 2013, the PA Campaign for Health is a collaboration of more than 55 local, state and national organizations calling for evidence-based policies to support and protect equal access to affordable reproductive healthcare including abortion, personal safety, and workplace equality. Specifically, the Campaign supports legislation to address pregnancy discrimination, close gaps in the state’s equal pay law, provide workplace accommodations for nursing workers, protect patients and doctors from harassment, and prohibit legislatively coercing doctors to lie to patients.
