A doctor who provides abortions was ordered — by her own hospital — not to talk about abortion in public.
So we’re helping her fight back. And we need your support.
Abortion providers deserve protection against discrimination. Tell Dr. Diane Horvath-Cosper she has your support.
“Especially at a time when abortion is marginalized and under attack, I’m compelled to speak out about the importance of abortion as a legal and safe medical procedure that’s critical to women’s health.” — Dr. Diane Horvath-Cosper
Diane has dedicated her career to ensuring women’s safe and legal access to abortion, and she believes she has a duty to speak out and de-stigmatize abortion. Following last year’s shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic, the hospital where Diane works refused to allow her to talk to the media about abortion and related women’s health issues — and forced her to choose between her job and her public advocacy about abortion.
NWLC and our co-counsel have filed a complaint on Diane’s behalf with the Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Not only does silencing employees for speaking out about abortion fail to protect patients and providers, it’s discrimination — and it’s against the law.
We’re fighting for Diane and providers like her who deserve protection from discrimination as they fight to protect critical women’s health care.
We’ll collect your messages and share them with Diane to thank her for her work to end the stigma against abortion.
Thanks for everything you do for women and families.
