The Massachusetts House and Senate have adopted budget amendments that will improve access to abortion in the Commonwealth, based on the ROE Act (S.1209
), supported by the LWVMA (see testimony here
). The budget will soon head to Governor Baker's desk.
Act now to ensure that Governor Baker signs a state budget into law that includes these provisions!
Please send a message urging Governor Baker to support equitable abortion access for Massachusetts women here
Dear Governor Baker,
Please support the ROE Act provisions in the state budget that will soon come to your desk from the legislature.
There is a very real possibility that the U.S. Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade and abolish the right to an abortion on the federal level. Massachusetts must lead in showing that states will affirm a woman's right to her own reproductive health decisions. Women in Massachusetts should be assured of improved and equitable access to abortion through passage of the ROE Act provisions in the state budget.
I and the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts urge you to support the ROE Act provisions as part of the state budget, when it arrives on your desk
