Women's Reproductive Health Caucus: Statement on Bill Banning Abortions
In solidarity with NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Progress VA and other stakeholders, the Women’s Reproductive Health Caucus strongly opposes HB 2321. HB 2321 would ban abortions after 20 weeks, regardless of whether the pregnancy is the product of rape or incest. This bill violates the rights of women and represents an inappropriate interference with a woman’s healthcare decisions. HB2321 is even more radical than a similar Congressional bill that was just defeated by a coalition of Republican women lawmaker for being too extreme. HB2321 is radical and we will work with our partners to make sure it does not become law.
