RI Top Court Upholds Abortion Rights Law

Rhode Island's Highest Court on Wednesday, upheld a State Law guaranteeing its Citizens' Right to Abortion, just as Abortion Rights at the National Level appear to be in Jeopardy.

The Rhode Island Supreme Court, Rejected a Lawsuit by several Individuals and Anti-Abortion group, Servants of Christ for Life, Challenging the State's Reproductive Privacy Act.

The Law, signed in 2019, by then-Governor Gina Raimondo (D), effectively Secures the Abortion Rights set out in the U.S. Supreme Court's Landmark 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade.

State-Level Legal battles over Abortion, will likely become common if the Nation's Supreme Court reverses Roe, as a Draft Opinion, leaked Monday, suggests it plans to do.

Other Democratic-led States, including Colorado and Vermont, have also moved to Pass Abortion Rights Laws.
