"It’s clear that CPCs are a threat to abortion rights and access and try to stand in the way of a person’s agency and autonomy to make decisions about abortion.... And now, the Trump administration is sending pregnant minors in government custody right to crisis pregnancy centers’ doors." Learn more about CPCs in CT: http://bit.ly/2018CPCsinCT

A look at the legislative session.
Senator Mae Flexer announces that Senate Democrats passed a bill ensuring that health insurance plans offered in the state of Connecticut cover the “10 essentia...l benefits” protected by the Affordable Care Act.
These benefits include
• outpatient care
• trips to the emergency room
• prenatal care and ongoing care for the baby throughout its childhood
• prescription medicine
• lab tests
• mental health services
• substance use disorder services.
This means the federal Affordable Care Act's ten essential health benefits will be preserved--even if the Trump administration ever succeeds in killing 'Obamacare.'
Protecting the health and well being of a mother and child is something I value. Rep. Anne Dauphinais was the only female legislator to vote against SB 206, wh...ich adds pregnancy as a qualifying event, allowing a special enrollment period to access healthcare coverage.
It is critical that women have access to prenatal care to ensure the health of both mother and baby. This bill passed unanimously in the Senate and with overwhelming bi-partisan support in the House. What do you think?
The Senate passed the bill unanimously at 36-0, while the House voted 142-8 at 11:22 p.m.
S.B. 206 HAS PASSED THE HOUSE! ✊
This is a huge win for maternal health care in Connecticut!
Women deserve care at ALL stages. They need prenatal care or care b...efore birth, skilled care during birth, and care after birth, all of which can be afforded to them through health insurance.
Another bill sent to the Office of Governor Dannel P. Malloy. 💪
CT VOTES TO BAN BUMP STOCKS. Following a strong bipartisan vote in the House last week, the Senate voted 26-10 to ban bump stocks and other rate-of-fire enhanci...ng devices.
