(Worthy News) – The Vermont legislature passed a bill protecting abortion at all stages of pregnancy for any reason Monday and pushed forward a measure to make abortion a constitutional right.
The bill, which passed both chambers of the state legislature, aims to “recognize as a fundamental right the freedom of reproductive choice and to prohibit public entities from interfering with or restricting the right of an individual to terminate the individual’s pregnancy,” according to Catholic News Agency.
The bill passed the House 106-37 and the Senate 24-6. Vermont Gov. Phil Scott (R.) has expressed support for protecting a woman’s ability to get an abortion, but it is not certain he will sign this bill. [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More…) ]
