Vermont Governor Signs Sweeping Abortions Rights Legislation Into Law

Vermont Governor Phil Scott has signed a sweeping abortion rights bill into law.

The bill requires the state to recognize the “fundamental right of every individual to choose or refuse contraception or sterilization” as well as the “fundamental right of every individual who becomes pregnant to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.” It also states that the government cannot “deny or interfere with an individual’s fundamental rights to choose or refuse contraception or sterilization or to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to obtain an abortion.”

The bill is only a reaffirmation of current law in Vermont regarding abortions.
