Pregnant Workers Fairness Act
Sample Letter to Elected Officials
Dear [Senate Majority Leader Schumer and Senate Minority Leader McConnell],
I write to voice my support for the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (S.1486). The Supreme Court’s recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization has prompted major shifts in the laws regulating pregnancy and abortion. It is now crucial that Congressional leaders work together to foster a national environment that promotes the health of all pregnant women and their children.
The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) will make workplaces safer for pregnant women. It will help those who want to remain in the workforce during pregnancy to do so, relieving them of the harrowing choice between their health and their child’s health and earning an income.
I encourage you to work with your colleagues to support pregnant women in the workforce. PWFA is a common-sense, bipartisan bill. I urge the Senate to bring the PWFA to a vote this month.
