Senate Passes Abortion Rights Bill; Legislation Now Heads To HousePlay
Abortion rights proponents say they're worried about what will happen to abortion access if President Trump appoints a Supreme Court justice willing to overturn the landmark decision Roe v. Wade.
Massachusetts has had a law on the books since the 19th century that criminalizes abortion — even though it's basically unenforceable because of Roe v. Wade. But, with concern that Roe v. Wade is imperiled, the state Senate has passed a bill to repeal that 173-year-old law.
