  • Remembering Congresswoman Louise Slaughter

    The Pro Choice Caucus mourns the loss of Co-chair Louise Slaughter and vows to continue her fearless, decades-long fight to ensure reproductive rights for every woman.
  • Seeking Justice for Jane

    The Trump administration's efforts to prevent several undocumented teens from obtaining abortions are unacceptable. The caucus is pushing back, demanding answers from administration officials.
  • #StopTheBans

    The Pro-Choice Caucus strongly opposes H.R. 36, the latest in a long line of Republican efforts to take away women's reproductive rights. We'll continue fighting to block this extreme and dangerous bill.
  • Opposing Anti-Choice Provisions

    Members of the caucus gathered to condemn the many anti-woman riders in the 2018 appropriations bills -- just one piece of Washington Republicans' dangerous agenda that seeks to roll back women's reproductive health.

Our Mission

The men and women of this caucus are fighting for constitutionally-protected rights for American women that are under siege. Join us!
