Roe v Wade 50th Anniversary

January 22, 2023
I am proud to say that during the 2022 Legislative Session, the Connecticut General Assembly passed the Reproductive Freedom Defense Act, which legally protects medical providers and patients traveling to Connecticut seeking abortion care. This legislation also allows for advanced practitioners for whom abortion care is part of their scope of practice to perform abortions. Governor Lamont later signed that bill into law.
Last year, I spoke about my own personal experience with reproductive healthcare and how the access that was provided to me is essential to healthcare.
