Hawaii Family Forum Legislative Week in Review

From Hawaii Family Forum, March 18, 2022

Medicaid Funding for Women Who Give Birth

SB 2634, Relating to Health, provides money from the general revenue to extend Medicaid postpartum coverage to twelve months following the end of pregnancy.  

Hawaii Family Forum provided testimony in support of this bill.

Studies show that many women experience postpartum for many months following the birth of her child.  One of the best things about being pro-life is that we support each and every woman who says yes to life.  It is not easy for some women, and mental health issues should be a priority for all of us.  This bill is a small way to help promote life in a way that benefits new mothers.

STATUS:  On Friday, March 18, 2022, the House Committee on Health, Human Services and Homelessness voted to pass the bill out of committee with minor adjustments.

The bill will now move to the House Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs.

TAKE ACTION!

Let Senator Mazie Hirono She Doesn't Speak for You!

On March 8, 2022, Sen. Mazie Hirono sponsored a resolution supporting the work of Planned Parenthood.  In her press conference, she stated...

"Women across the country are under attack-but so too are the health care professionals who provide safe and legal abortions. Across the country, abortion providers experience intimidation, harassment, threats, and violence from anti-abortion extremists. These doctors, nurses, and staff fear for their lives just to provide access to reproductive care," said Senator Mazie Hirono. "I'm proud to introduce this resolution with my colleagues to honor all health care providers who keep patients safe and healthy-and do their part to help provide access to reproductive care, including abortions."

TAKE ACTION NOW:  Senator Hirono has a right to her opinion, but she also represents the pro-life community too.  Use this link to send a message to her to let Senator Hirono know that she does not speak for you when she promotes Planned Parenthood.
