Women’s Reproductive Rights and the Hyde Amendment

Join us at the ACLU of Colorado office for an important discussion on women’s reproductive rights.

We’ll focus on the Hyde Amendment – a restriction using federal funds for women’s health care that has predominantly hurt the underprivileged.

The Hyde Amendment prohibits federal funds in Medicaid and other health programs from being used for abortions.

In these cases, poor women are denied access to abortion because they can’t afford it and are more likely to fall further into poverty.

During the event, we’ll screen a recent film highlighting the ban’s effect on the most vulnerable women in our communities.
