Abortion Rights Are Under Attack - What We Can Do
Updated: Sep 9, 2021
Last week we witnessed our worst fears when it comes to restrictions on abortion rights and reproductive freedom. A nightmarish Texas state law banning abortions at 6 weeks, and allowing citizen to sue those who assist a person who seeks an abortion to be sued for $10,000 plus legal fees took effect, with no action from the 6-3 majority conservative court. The hard work we knew we needed to put in to protecting abortions rights by codify Roe v Wade into Rhode Island law under the 2019 Reproductive Privacy Act unfortunately has come to pay off. So, what can we do about this threat to our liberties and choice?
