HB1171 will add a right to abortion to the Maryland State Constitution.
Please join us in Annapolis on Thursday, March 10 at 5:30pm on Lawyer's Mall for a MD March for Life Part 2 Rally!
Speaker Adrienne Jones introduced HB1171 this session and rushed it to and through committee to try and add a RIGHT to an abortion in our state constitution. If passed in both chambers of the General Assembly, the right to an abortion would be added to the state constitution, nullifying nearly all current limitations to abortion in Maryland. It would make it impossible to restrict or eliminate abortion even in the event that Roe vs. Wade is overturned. This "Abortion Amendment" would be placed on the ballot in the upcoming 2022 General Election and would be voted on by the people of Maryland. The governor can't veto it and once passed, it would take another constitutional amendment to repeal it. We MUST stop it before it makes it to the Senate. Please join us this week for a webcast, rally, and action alerts! We need all hands on deck!
