Post-Dobbs, House Republican leaders use every avenue to control and oppress women
More than one year after the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, the appropriations bills put forward by House Republican leaders make clear their intent to continue the unrelenting efforts of extremists to erode women’s rights and eliminate hard-won protections essential to women’s survival. The bills include dangerous proposals that would diminish women’s quality of life by zeroing out or severely weakening programs aimed at protecting women’s health, reproductive health services, equitable workplaces, and pay. The cuts sought by Republican leaders, as outlined in the Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) appropriations bills, would be devastating for all women, particularly women of color, and their families. After agreeing to a bipartisan, bicameral deal that set spending levels for FY24, they effectively want to renegotiate by demanding severe and drastic cuts at the expense of America’s working families, and threatening a government shutdown in October if they don’t get their way.
