Repealing the Hyde Amendment for reproductive justice

Loretta Ross is the National Coordinator of SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective, and is a supporter of Raising Women’s Voices. She wrote an article about the need for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment. The article can be reached at the On the Issues website. It describes the need for federal funding of abortion for the most disadvantaged women in our communities. Ross states that President Obama “is disappointing his strongest supporters by not standing up for the rights of poor women who need public funding for abortion”.
