The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is urging Catholics to contact their Members of Congress to pass legislation that advances the health, safety, and flourishing of women, children, and families.
Women and children face many challenges today that threaten their well-being. As Catholics in a post-Roe world, we must increase our efforts to build a culture of life that supports the dignity of every person at every stage. We call on our lawmakers to do the same.
Bills such as the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and the PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act will help protect life at its start. Families also need legislative support for the Child Tax Credit, paid family leave, pregnancy resource centers, child care and pre-kindergarten programs, housing, nutrition, maternal and child health, adoption, healthy relationships, environmental protections, the inclusion of immigrant families in social programs, and the end of marriage penalties.
