Week Four of the 2018 Utah Legislative Session
We’re over the hump and more than halfway through the 2018 Legislative Session! Here’s what you can do to keep the momentum up on this downward slope:
Check in with the Governor
Our dear old friend, Gov. Gary Herbert, expressed his unease about the constitutionality of Lisonbee’s Down Syndrome Nondiscrimination Abortion Act with the press this week. We don’t blame him: Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and protects access to safe and legal abortion. In fact, an Ohio bill similar to H.B. 205 signed into law last year currently has that state in a lawsuit against ACLU Ohio and Planned Parenthood.
Call the Governor at 800-705-2464 today. Request a transfer to the constituent line and leave a message reminding him that abortion bans, like the one in H.B. 205, ARE in fact unconstitutional. Tell him you support his effort to work with the legislature to remove the abortion ban.
You can also write him to let him know he is right in not wanting to take on this unconstitutional ban.
