Demand Access to Health Care for Peace Corps Volunteers
23,420 people support this campaign. Help us get to 25,000!
Peace Corps volunteers devote their time and energy in service to people all around the world, and sadly, too often they face the risk of sexual assault.
But did you know that women in the Peace Corps are denied access to abortion coverage – even in cases of rape, incest or life endangerment? It’s outrageous.
The Peace Corps Equity Act of 2013 would fix this—and we know we can make it happen. When the American public realized that military women—who are also frequently victims of sexual assault—were denied abortion coverage in such cases, the public outcry led to the passage of the Shaheen Amendment to change that.
So we know that if we speak out loud enough, we can win this.
Will you help create the groundswell we need to ensure that women in the Peace Corps have access to abortion coverage?
