Connecticut passes bill expanding abortion related protections. Gov pledges to sign it

With a major U.S. Supreme Court ruling months away, the state Senate debated emotionally Friday night before approving a key abortion bill that would be the most far-reaching in Connecticut in the past 32 years.

The bipartisan bill would increase the number of medical professionals allowed to perform abortions in Connecticut and expand abortion-related protections regarding lawsuits.


After three hours of debate, the Senate voted 25-9 with two Republicans absent shortly before midnight.

The often-emotional, personal and passionate debate included opposition by some members of the legislature’s Black and Puerto Rican Caucus, who said they were inspired by a freshman legislator, Rep. Trenee McGee of West Haven, who spoke passionately recently before voting against the bill.

The state House of Representatives had voted 87-60 recently for the measure, and Gov. Ned Lamont has pledged to sign it into law.

4. I am extremely proud of our state.

We have tough laws to protect essential liberties rather than fascist (red) America’s trend of eliminating liberty.
