Tell the Maryland General Assembly to Protect Abortion Rights by Amending the State Constitution
With the risk of Roe v. Wade being overturned this year, reproductive freedoms are at risk like never before. We're calling on the members of the Maryland General Assembly to amend the state constitution NOW to protect personal reproductive liberty and guarantee the right to an abortion.
Why is this important?
The 1973 Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade made access to safe and legal abortion a constitutional right. Today, that freedom is at risk like never before.
In 2021, states introduced 663 abortion restrictions and enacted 108 of them — a record number since 1973. Meanwhile, 80% of Americans want abortion to be legal.
We are the majority, and in this unprecedented time where the federal right to abortion may be no more, it is up to state governments to step in and ensure our laws reflect that. Passing a constitutional amendment to protect reproductive rights NOW is one of the most concrete measures we can take before it is too late.
That’s why I am calling on the Maryland General Assembly to amend the state constitution to protect personal reproductive liberty and guarantee the right to an abortion. Add your name to show your support!
