Building upon the important work of the Reproductive Privacy Act, the Equality in Abortion Coverage Act ensures that abortion care is covered by Medicaid and within the health insurance plans of state employees. This critical legislation guarantees that abortion is not only a legal right for all Rhode Islanders, but that it is economically accessible to all individuals. Positively, this bill passed and was signed into law!!
