Two major bills that violate human life and dignity are expected to pass the Maryland House of Delegates imminently:
The proposed ballot measure, (HB1171), would amend the Maryland Constitution to prohibit laws that protect life in the womb and would restrict laws to protect women’s safety at abortion facilities.
The Abortion Care Access Act (HB937/SB890), would allow abortions to be performed by non-physicians and require insurance coverage of abortions, among other things.
Immediate action is needed in order to stop these destructive and dangerous measures in the Maryland Senate, where hopefully the leadership will not even bring up the bills for a vote. Here's what you can do:
Contact your senator today to say that you oppose HB1171, the Abortion Amendment. Click here for a list of senators and their contact information.
