Vermont Wants To Pass A Bill Affirming Abortion As A RightRebecca "Burt" Rose1/08/14 11:28pmFiled to: roe vs worldabortionvermont16842EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkFuck yeah, Vermont! AdvertisementVermont, which I will not make a Pepperidge Farm joke about, could pass a bill affirming abortion as a right for all women in the state:The bill, S 315, introduced by state Sens. Tim Ashe (D/P-Chittenden), Christopher Bray (D-Addison), Sally Fox (D-Chittenden), Virginia Lyons (D-Chittenden), Dick McCormack (D-Windsor), and David Zuckerman (P-Chittenden), would repeal old Vermont statutes still on the books that criminalize performing abortion or advertising about abortion services. While those statutes pre-date Roe v. Wade and are thus unenforceable, the new bill states that repealing them would "serve as an important legislative action in support of a woman's reproductive rights as well as help a health care provider to perform an abortion without fear of criminal liability."Yes. Goddamn yes to all of this. It's about fucking time one of our states got their shit together when it comes to our reproductive rights.
