Megan Messerly of Politico reports that some Republican state legislators and governors around the country are championing bills to expand postpartum Medicare coverage and increase access to birth control. The policy proposals come in the wake of abortion bans in many conservative states that went into place after the Supreme Court overturned Roe this past summer. Oklahoma state Sen. Jessica Garvin said, “The most important thing for people to realize is we need to be pro-life and not just pro-birth. That means investing in our families.
