UPDATE: House Bill 161 been referred to the Senate Labor Committee. 

House Bill 161 “Human life equality-prohibiting discriminatory abortions” is a partial but deeply impactful ban on some abortions. 

We House Bill 161 because it disguises an attack on reproductive freedom as prohibiting discrimination when all it actually does is prohibit abortions done for certain reasons, thereby inserting political interference into family decisions and intruding on the doctor-patient relationship.
