Republican legislators have snuck harmful and unfair abortion restrictions into the state budget.
The budget includes restrictions that would force women seeking an abortion to undergo a trans-abdominal ultrasound, eliminate low-cost family planning services, and prohibit rape crisis centers from even mentioning abortion to sexual assault victims.
This puts low-income women at a disadvantage, forces women to pay for medically unnecessary ultrasounds, and shames survivors of rape.
This is not how a government is meant to treat its citizens.
We need these restrictions repealed.
