- The Washington Post reports U.S. Senate Democrats have issues with a perceived lack of safeguards for data related to abortions in the proposed American Data Privacy and Protection Act. In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade reversal, lawmakers are exploring avenues to protect women's health and reproductive privacy rights. Democratic staffers on the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation circulated a memo explaining the ADPPA "makes it harder for women to seek redress when their sensitive health data has been used against them."
- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., wrote to House Democrats proposing work to draft legislation that "protects women’s most intimate and personal data stored in reproductive health apps."
