DEMOCRATS DELIVER TO PROTECT THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE
Reproductive Freedom is under siege in Maryland and across the country. The GOP has flooded the judicial system, tightened abortion access, and overturned Roe v. Wade.
Maryland Democrats have fought back by making our state safe haven state following SCOTUS’ decision to overturn Roe v Wade. Abortion will remain protected in Maryland and Abortion Access was strengthened last session with Delegate Ariana Kelly’s legislation, the Abortion Care Access Act. Through this bill, funding is provided to increase the amount of training programs for any medical professional to be able to provide an abortion. Increasing the number of providers in Maryland will allow the state to meet the demand of an influx of patients from around the country. Madam Speaker Adrienne Jones has advocated for enhancing those protections in Maryland law next session as well through a constitutional amendment.
