Hearing in Senate for Reproductive Health Care Act
This is the news we've been waiting for! Senate hearing this Thursday, May 31 for the Reproductive Health Care Act- S-2163 at around 4:30 p.m. This law would make abortion legal and safe in Rhode Island.
Come one and all, either to sign in support, or to submit written or oral testimony. You are also invited to lobby legislators at 3:00 p.m with the Coalition for Reproductive Freedom (22 member groups, including the League of Women Voters of Rhode Island.)
We are asking that the bill be passed in committee, and brought to the floor of the Senate for a vote this session.
This is your best chance to support women's reproductive freedom. Come if at all possible, and email, call or write your legislators and Senator Erin Lynch Prata, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
