“Pro-choice activists aren’t giving up hope to pass an abortion-rights bill this session after a Senate committee struck it down on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, leaving pro-lifers cheering.” (WJAR)
Raptakis said women who want to get an abortion in Rhode Island can still do so. He doesn't think there's any urgency to pass the bill. “If there's a fear with the Supreme Court happening, we've got time,” said Raptakis. “We're coming back in six months.” See the full coverage at: WJAR
