The Maryland Legislature is considering an anti-abortion bill that would prohibit public funding of essential reproductive health care services.
Please take a few moments to urge your legislators to oppose this bill (HB 834) and support such funding.
Legislation designed to curb access to abortion services aims to codify into law beliefs not based on science or morality, but on religion and so-called holy books. The Christian Right has been and remains the primary opponent to women’s reproductive rights. We must make certain that our lawmakers do not abandon the safety and autonomy of some of the most vulnerable Marylanders in favor of religious dogma.
