Cupcakes delivered to supporters of reproductive rights at the State House

Members of the General Assembly that supported the 2017 Reproductive Health Care Act (RHCA) were presented with heartfelt thanks, and a cupcake, by members of The Woman Project before the beginning of Tuesday’s session.

The RHCA did not pass last year. The legislation never got out of committee.

Legislators were asked to support the 2018 RHCA.

As of this writing House and Senate leadership has indicated that the bill is not a priority.
