Let your representatives know that you support accessible reproductive health care! Find out who represents you in your state government here.
- Support H 7340, which would prohibit the state from restricting any person from terminating a pregnancy prior to fetal viability (the stage in which the fetus could survive outside the womb). This bill would also repeal the laws that regulate abortion, spousal notice of abortion, partial birth abortion, and those that classify abortion as murder. Even further, all health insurance contracts would be mandated to cover procedures involving abortion.
- Speak out against H 7180, which would recognize the fetus as a human life with the presence of a heartbeat.
- Let your representatives know that you do not support a bill that would classify encouraging, aiding, or contributing to the transportation of a minor across state lines to get an abortion a felony.
- Express support for an act that requires health and insurance providers to give comprehensive information regarding contraception and abortion.
- Speak out in opposition to the Partial-Birth Abortion Act, which uses inflammatory and graphic language to make the dilation and excavation abortion, the most common type of abortion used in the second trimester of pregnancy, a felony.
- Speak out against S2152. If an infant is born as a result of an attempted abortion, this bill would mandate that the infant be transported to a hospital and cared for immediately, rather than allowing doctors to decide on a case-by-case basis what is best for the infant.
- Support a bill that prevents the state from interfering on individuals’ decisions regarding their reproductive health.
- Tell your representatives that the The Rhode Island Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion Act, which would prohibit dilation and excavation abortions, making reasonable reproductive health services less accessible for the citizens of Rhode Island.
