Senators Clinton and Murray Take Action To Block HHS Regulation

UPDATE: Yesterday, Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) introduced legislation that would prevent the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) "provider-conscience" rule from being implemented. The bill, called Protecting Patients Health Care Act, is great news for women, as the HHS rule could have a drastic impact on access to quality health care.

From PPFA President Cecile Richards:

“This pending health care refusal regulation poses a serious threat to a woman’s ability to trust that she is getting complete and accurate health care information and services. Senators Clinton and Murray are true champions of women’s health, and their proposed legislation sends a strong signal to administrative agencies that Congress will not stand by as those agencies try to slip in ill-conceived midnight regulations.”
