Healthcare Access

The ACLU of Washington believes that everyone should have access to lawful best care medical treatment.

The ACLU of Washington is enforcing our state laws and fighting back against the use of religion to discriminate in order to ensure Washington residents have access to reproductive, end-of-life and LGBT related health care services, referrals and information.
