The abortion debate in America has lately been dominated by news that conservative lawmakers in Alabama, Georgia, Ohio and Missouri had approved sweeping new restrictions to abortion access. But meanwhile, several states with Democratic majorities have been pushing through bills that fortify abortion rights.
While proponents of abortion rights had few outright victories, they say they are making progress.
On Tuesday, the Vermont House gave final approval to H.57, a bill that states abortion is a “fundamental right” and also protects the right to contraception, sterilization and family planning. It is now at the desk of Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican, who said he has not decided on it yet, according to the Associated Press.
