|The Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade in June. It's now more important than ever to enact protections at the state level.
On Tuesday, Governor Lamont signed the Reproductive Freedom Defense Act into law, which expands access to abortion and legally protects medical providers and patients traveling to Connecticut seeking abortion care. I am so proud of this legislative and thankful to to my fellow members of the Reproductive Rights Caucus and the advocates at Planned Parenthood, ACLU of Connecticut and Pro-Choice Connecticut. This would not have been possible without them.
At a dark time in our country, I am glad that Connecticut can be a light.
