URGENT - Email YOUR State Representative to Oppose NY/VA Style Abortion Bills

Two extreme NY / VA style abortion expansion bills -- H5125 (Williams) and H5127 (Ajello) -- were heard before the House Judiciary Committee on January 29. Contrary to false assertions by bill proponents and local media, expert legal analysis demonstrates how, among many serious issues, both bills allow for abortion in Rhode Island up to the moment of birth, and for virtually any reason whatsoever.

Multiple sources have privately confirmed to us that abortion proponents are planning an amended (Sub A) version of these bills, likely the Williams bill (H5125). They will falsely claim that the cleverly and deceptively amended language resolves many of the problems we have demonstrated. Some abortion activists may even publicly pretend opposition as a ruse for assisting its passage.

Time is short, please act now

It is CRITICAL that you email your State Representative ASAP, urging them to oppose these bills and any cleverly amended versions thereof... and then to invite all of your pro-life family, friends, neighbors, and church-mates to do the same. After sending your email, you will also be asked to call the State House office of Speaker Nicholas Mattiello to thank him, in advance, for continuing to stand firm against these extreme NY / VA style abortion expansion bills.
