Week Six of the 2019 Utah Legislative Session
In week 6 of the 2019 Utah Legislative Session, the Senate Judiciary, Law Enforcement, and Criminal Justice Committee voted HB 136 out of committee with a favorable recommendation and on to the entire body for a vote. They did this despite compelling testimony from local experts telling them why an 18-week abortion ban was bad policy that would hurt women. And despite the fact that they understood that HB 136 is unconstitutional and will guarantee them a lawsuit.
Now we turn our attention to the Senate and need your help in emailing your senator and asking them to Vote No on HB 136. Fill out our form to automatically email them here. Add your own personal details and story to the body of the email. Tell your senator why you want abortion to remain safe and legal at 18 weeks and beyond.
