National Right to Life Position Statement on Contraception and H.R. 8373, the So-called “Right to Contraception Act”

Published on

National Right to Life does not oppose contraception and takes no position on contraception.

H.R. 8373, the so-called “Right to Contraception Act,” goes far beyond the scope of contraception. It includes provisions that would:

1) prevent state governments and Congress from reducing or eliminating funding of abortion providers if the abortion provider also dispensed contraceptives and

2)  Defines contraceptives so broadly so as to likely include abortion pills such as RU486 which can be taken weeks and months into pregnancy to cause abortions and then prevents any state or federal action that would in any way limit the provision of these abortion pills.

For these reasons, NRLC is opposed to the “Right to Contraception Act (H.R. 8373) and will include votes related to H.R. 8373 in our scorecard of key right-to-life votes of the 117th Congress.
