Pelosi says Democrats are mulling plans to protect abortion access, info stored in reproductive health apps

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday said the chamber’s Democrats are exploring legislation to protect personal data stored on reproductive health apps, ensure the right to free travel between states and codify the right to an abortion after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade case.

The ideas, posed by Pelosi to fellow House Democrats in a letter dated Monday, follows the court’s ruling on Friday that upended nearly 50 years of abortion rights in the U.S. The decision has sparked nationwide outrage from supporters of abortion access in the days since.

“This weekend, the American people spoke out in person and in large numbers about their opposition to the Supreme Court’s disrespect for a woman’s freedom over her reproductive health,” the California Democrat Pelosi wrote. “While this extremist Supreme Court works to punish and control the American people, Democrats must continue our fight to expand freedom in America.”
