Email Your State Senator to Urge Them to Reject Governor Baker’s Amendment Undermining Abortion Access
The Massachusetts legislature has demonstrated its commitment to reproductive health care by decisively passing a state budget section that will improve abortion access. But now Governor Baker has sent the budget provision back to the legislature — with an amendment that fully undermines the legislature’s efforts to safeguard young people and create more equitable abortion access.
The governor’s amendment would sabotage the work we’ve done over the past two years to ensure everyone has access to abortion, no matter their age, address, or income. It’s absolutely crucial that we ensure that lawmakers vote to reject the governor’s amendment to ensure we eliminate politically motivated barriers to abortion in state law.
The House just rejected Governor Baker’s anti-choice amendments to Section 40 of the FY 2021 state budget by a 107 - 49 majority. Send a message to your State Senator to urge them to reject the governor’s amendment and ensure that our state laws protect abortion access for everyone.
