Statement “America’s moms, women, health care providers, pregnant people, and all those who support democracy can breathe a sigh of relief that SCOTUS is rejecting restrictions on access to mifepristone, for now. The lower courts should never have allowed restrictions on an FDA-approved medication that has been used safely and effectively for 23 years, is proven safer than penicillin, Tylenol and Viagra, and is the only option many of us have left for abortion.

Statement “The executive order the Biden/Harris administration issued today is bold, transformative, and badly needed. At a time when millions of families cannot access or afford the child care, elder care, and/or disability care we need, these measures will support moms, family caregivers, care workers, businesses, communities, and our economy. This Executive Order puts the full weight of our federal government behind solutions to some of the most debilitating problems of our time. It will help address the child care crisis that has driven so many moms out of the workforce.

Statement “America’s moms cheer the Biden administration’s move to make health coverage through Medicaid, CHIP, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace available to our country’s nearly 600,000 DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. DACA provides protections for hundreds of thousands of young people brought to this country as children, making it the only home most have ever really known.

Statement “Last night’s 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling was, quite simply, appalling. America’s moms are counting on SCOTUS to reaffirm the FDA’s authority and ensure that mifepristone – which is safer than Tylenol and Viagra – remains as available to people in this country as it was before Judge Kacsmaryk ruled last Friday night. Anything less will create mass confusion and unacceptable delays for patients with urgent reproductive health care needs, with devastating consequences for moms and pregnant people who need abortion.

Statement “Tennessee Republicans may be able to expel two Democratic lawmakers, but they will never silence the demand for safety from gun violence for our children and for our communities.  "And Tennessee Republicans may have stripped thousands of constituents of their representation in the State House, but their egregious violation of First Amendment rights will not stand.

Statement “In the United States today, Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) women continue to lose valuable, hard-earned income to the wage gap – income they could use for food, housing, child care, health care, retirement savings and more. On average, AANHPI women working full-time are paid just 92 cents for every dollar paid to white men. That’s wrong, unjustifiable and incredibly harmful, and averages only reveal part of the picture.

Statement “America’s moms are proud to celebrate the lives and contributions of trans people today, on the Transgender Day of Visibility. Moms in this country are transgender, are parents to transgender children, and supporters of the transgender community. We want trans people to be able to contribute fully to our society, and to live without facing discrimination, hate and violence.
March 30, 2023
Statement “Today’s ruling by District Court Judge Reed O’Connor puts the health of moms, children, and more than 150 million people at grave and unnecessary risk. The relentless legal and political attacks on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are cruel, outrageous, and deeply harmful.

Statement “The health and wellbeing of North Carolina moms and families is sure to improve now that state legislators passed and Gov. Roy Cooper signed Medicaid expansion into law. Some 600,000 North Carolinians will benefit directly, and many more will reap benefits from this very welcome and long overdue advance. Closing our state’s coverage gap will improve coverage and care for people in rural communities, help close racial health disparities, and improve maternal and infant health and access to mental health and substance abuse services.
