Action alert on choice


The Rhode Island General Assembly is getting ready to end its legislative session without voting on the Reproductive Health Care Act of 2017 (S 274/H 5343).
Take Action Today
Call House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello and Senate President Dominick Ruggerio.
Speaker Mattiello: (401) 222-2466
President Ruggerio: (401) 222-6655
Ask them "Why won't you let the Reproductive Health Care Act come to a vote?" 
Let them know that if the General Assembly does not take action this year, we will be back next year, louder and stronger and in larger numbers.
The national attack on reproductive rights, including the right to safe, legal abortion, is unmistakable.  President Trump is appointing judges who oppose Roe vs Wade and Congress is trying to pass legislation to repeal the ACA and "defund" Planned Parenthood.
Rhode Island must act now.
Thousands of Rhode Islanders have called and written their legislators, showed up for committee hearings and met directly with their own elected officials, sent post cards and emails, marched and rallied.
The message is clear: Rhode Islanders support the Reproductive Health Care Act, which would put the basic protections of Roe vs Wade into Rhode Island law so that no matter what happens at the national level, our rights are secured.
But the Democrats who control our General Assembly refuse to let the Reproductive Health Care Act to come to a vote.
Let's ask them why.
In solidarity,

Craig R. O'Connor | Director of Public Policy and Government Relations, Rhode Island

Act. No matter what.
