We must act now to expand abortion access in Connecticut.

It's time to modernize our abortion law.

More than 30 years ago, Connecticut took a bold move: codifying the right to abortion in our state laws. But our regulations create medically unnecessary barriers to abortion and don't reflect how modern medical care is provided.

We must expand abortion access in Connecticut by passing H.B. 5261: An Act Increasing Access to Reproductive Health Care to allow advanced practice clinicians (APCs) to provide safe, routine aspiration abortion to their patients.

Bottom line: Abortion is health care.

Despite the attacks and misconceptions, here's the truth: abortion is health care. Nearly 1 in 4 women in America will have an abortion by age 45. Every day, people across the country and here in Connecticut make deeply personal decisions about their pregnancies. Those decisions deserve respect.

Patients in Connecticut want, need, and deserve abortion access. Ensuring advance practice clinicians can provide safe, routine procedural abortion is an important way to ensure access to abortion care.
