Reproductive Rights & Current RI Legislation

This month's episode features a lively discussion about the Reproductive Health Care Act and the state of reproductive rights in RI.  Thank you to our guests and host!

BACKGROUND: With the constitutional protections of Roe v. Wade hanging in the balance in light of a divided U.S. Supreme Court, Rep. Edith Ajello and Sen. Gayle Goldin have introduced legislation - the Reproductive Health Care Act  (H-7340, S-2163) - that would codify the principles of that seminal court decision into state law and ensure that women in Rhode Island continue to have access to safe reproductive health care. A major push is underway by a coalition of pro-choice organizations, including the ACLU, to enact the bill. You can read our statement on this legislation here.  Click here for a printable factsheet on this issue.
