The General Assembly also considers a host of anti-choice legislation each year aimed at restricting or eliminating the ability of Rhode Islanders to make their own reproductive choices. Among them was legislation imposing felony penalties against any person who assists a minor in obtaining an abortion in another state without the consent of the minor's parents or the courts. The ACLU testified in opposition to this legislation before the House Judiciary committee in April and the Senate Judiciary committee in May; neither committee took action on this or a myriad of other anti-choice bills.
