Pro-Life State House Update – H.57 & PR. 5

VRLC is compiling information on how each Representative voted on H.57 and that information will be made available to you shortly. H.57 has been sent to the Vermont Senate Health and Welfare Committee for consideration, but they have not begun working on the Bill. The Committee has turned their attention to PR. 5, the proposal to enshrine abortion in our Vermont Constitution. You can find PR. 5 here.

The Senate Health and Welfare Committee is planning a day-long hearing on PR. 5 on Wednesday, March 13.
