Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Linda Sánchez (CA-38), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, released the following statement on the administration decision to roll back access to contraceptives which could affect 62 million women:

“All women have the right to comprehensive and affordable health care – including contraceptives. The Trump administration’s rule rolling back access to birth control coverage is an outright attack on women’s health. Millions of women in the United States rely on contraception as part of their personal health care. This sweeping action by the Trump administration allows the government and employers to interfere in a private medical decision.”
