Since 2012, NIRH has prioritized insurance coverage for abortion care in its local strategies, supporting advocates working with their city councils and local boards of health to ensure that all women have insurance coverage for abortion care.

NIRH has worked with partners over the years to develop local policy strategies to address clinic violence and, post-McCullen, continues to encourage clinics and advocates to seek appropriate policy remedies for threats to patients and clinics in communities, while respecting the First Amendment rights of those who oppose abortion.

NIRH is committed to assisting advocates in addressing the deceptive practices of anti-abortion pregnancy centers. We have tracked the trend of combating crisis pregnancy centers through undercover investigations and legislation to mitigate their negative effects.
