For more than four decades, politicians have pushed abortion out of reach for poor women, young folks, and people of color through the Hyde Amendment and other restrictions on insurance coverage for abortion care.

Before you head to the polls, make sure you have the information you need to vote BOLDLY. Find out where your candidate stands on abortion coverage with these 3 questions:

3. Ensuring that a woman can get insurance coverage for the full range of reproductive health care is an important part of ensuring that she has equal economic opportunities. What actions will you take to help ensure women and families can be healthy and live with dignity?
