Keeping Neil Gorsuch off the Supreme Court
NAF is deeply concerned that Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch would vote to weaken or even overturn fundamental freedoms, given his judicial record and nomination by President Trump. We are demanding that Senators closely examine his judicial philosophies on privacy and reproductive rights, and do all they can to block his confirmation to the Supreme Court. President Trump and Vice President Pence have made it clear they will pursue an agenda that is hostile to reproductive health and will do all they can to eliminate abortion access. The nomination of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court is part of this strategy.

Educating Policymakers on the Impact of the Hyde Amendment
The Hyde amendment’s impact is staggering. Since 1976, it has prohibited the federal funding of most abortion care. The National Abortion Federation hears from women every day who want to make the best decision for themselves and their families, but are denied that autonomy because of this harmful measure. Funding restrictions are a huge barrier for women’s access to abortion care. NAF works with a broad coalition of providers and advocacy organizations to educate lawmakers on the consequences of Hyde on low-income women and families, and its disproportionate impact on women of color. As part of work against Hyde, we support the federal strategy work of the All* Above All campaign and educate lawmakers about the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH) Woman Act.
