Amid Mounting Concerns About Kavanaugh's Threat to Reproductive Rights, Massachusetts Repeals 173-Year-Old Abortion Ban

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

Massachusetts lawmakers on Monday passed legislation repealing an unenforced 173-year-old abortion ban—which Republican Gov. Charlie Baker said he will sign—highlighting concerns among reproductive rights advocates about the record of President Donald Trump's latest nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, and what his confirmation could mean for women's rights.

Never hurts to clean out the statutes. The WBUR source says they go back to the 17th century. I’m curious to actually read those laws.

Yea Mass! On the state ballot this Fall: Fifteen dollar minimum wage, and doing away with Citizens United at least at the state level.

You boycott those states that side with the right wing bass turds. That’s what they understand the most: no money!
