New Campaign Urges Biden To Eliminate Hyde Amendment in Budget

On Monday, abortion justice nonprofit All* Above All launched a week-long campaign urging President Biden to submit his first budget without the Hyde Amendment and related abortion coverage bans. Within the U.S., the Hyde Amendment essentially bars federal abortion coverage through Medicaid. Proposed as a response to Roe v. Wade, Hyde is known for its devastating impact on millions of low-income women and families.

EACH Act: Ending A Decades-Old Abortion Coverage Ban, Prioritizing Freedom and Justice

After more than four decades of work, there is unprecedented momentum to end the Hyde Amendment. And today, we are one step closer with the introduction of the EACH Act by U.S. Representatives Barbara Lee, Ayanna Pressley, Diana DeGette, Jan Schakowsky, and U.S. Senators Tammy Duckworth, Mazie Hirono and Patty Murray.

The EACH Act would reverse the Hyde Amendment, ensuring anyone who gets their insurance through Medicaid or other federal insurance will be covered for abortion and other pregnancy-related care.
