Rabb comments on reproductive rights legislation
HARRISBURG, Sep. 19 – State Rep. Chris Rabb, D-Phila., released the following statement on today’s news conference where his Democratic colleagues rolled out a package of reproductive rights legislation.
“Today’s press conference that my colleagues held introduced several crucial bills to protect the reproductive freedoms and bodily autonomy of birthing people across the commonwealth.
“Our Republican colleagues, who claim to be so “pro-life”, are not concerned with the birthing people who will be affected by forced births if reproductive freedoms are taken from Pennsylvanians. We are already hearing gruesome stories of people who are not allowed to get abortions in states where it’s already been made illegal.
“I stand with my colleagues in this fight to preserve these freedoms for all birthing people of the commonwealth and will continue fighting in Harrisburg to ensure the Republicans’ attempts to strip them do not come to fruition.
