(Providence, RI) – Statement by The Womxn Project on today’s hearing in Senate Health and Human Services Committee to consider H 5125B:
“We have been working for decades to advance legislation to protect right to seek an abortion. This bill is a necessary and powerful challenge to the slew of states where politicians who do not know our lives or care about our stories have pushed to take abortion care away.
This bill stands as a clear rejection of anyone who thinks they should be able to control our bodies, take away our rights, or deny the ability to make our own decisions about how we build our families and our futures.
Activists from across the state are coming together today either at the State House standing united or from their homes and offices as they email and call their senators to urge their support of this critical legislation.
It has been a long road, but we are excited about the possibility of taking this important step forward. We are in this together. The time is now.”
