Senate Republicans likely to reject making contraception a federal right
Quick Glance: Senate Democrats Pressure Republicans on Contraceptive Access Vote
  • The Senate is set to vote on legislation that would codify the right to access contraceptives nationwide, with Democrats aiming to prioritize reproductive care in their messaging agenda before the elections.

  • The Right to Contraception Act is expected to fail due to Senate Republicans dismissing it as a political ploy and objecting to broad language that could include some abortion-related medications.

  • Democrats are aiming to squeeze Republicans on reproductive rights ahead of the 2024 election after significant wins in the previous cycle.

  • Republicans emphasize supporting access to birth control but will introduce their own legislation, led by Senator Joni Ernst, which protects access to contraceptives while limiting certain medications they find objectionable.
