As Supreme Court Threatens Right to Choose, Gov. Lamont Signs First-in-the-Nation Legislation Protecting Reproductive Rights

Latest News

This week, as the Supreme Court appears poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, Gov. Lamont signed legislation ensuring abortion patients and providers are protected in Connecticut.

The first-in-the-nation law protects patients seeking abortion care in Connecticut who may be traveling from other states that have outlawed abortion. The law comes at a critical time, as Republican-led states pass extreme, draconian measures to restrict access to reproductive health care and make criminals out of people who receive them.

Here are the latest headlines on Gov. Lamont’s historic action to protect reproductive rights:

“With the urgent threat of the Supreme Court overturning Roe and Republicans plotting to ban abortion in their states, Gov. Lamont’s action to protect abortion patients and providers couldn’t come at a more critical moment,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “Across the country, Democratic governors are taking action to ensure people have the freedom to make their own decisions about their reproductive health care.”
