What is the ROE Act?
The Massachusetts Roe Act includes two bills, one filed in the Senate and one filed in the House:
- S1209/ H.3320 ROE Act: Would remove obstacles and expand abortion access. Would protect the health safety and privacy of young people by removing permission from a parent or judge to obtain an abortion. Ensures medical decisions are between a patient and her doctor. Establishes a safety net coverage for abortion care that already exists for other pregnancy care for people excluded from Mass Health. Senator Chandler and Rep Livingstone – Assigned to Joint Committee on Public Health – passed to The Joint Committee on the Judiciary and a hearing was held in June.
