Fight Back

Helena is proudly pro-choice. She believes that a woman’s right to choose is between her and her doctor — and no politician or government has a right to interfere. As Rhode Island’s governor, she will always fight to protect a woman’s right to choose.

 

Helena fully supports The Equality in Abortion Coverage Act (“EACA”), which has been proposed in the Rhode Island General Assembly to eliminate barriers to abortion access.

ADVOCATE FOR THE EQUALITY IN ABORTION ACT AND HELP END ABORTION BANS IN RI

While the Reproductive Privacy Act codified Roe v. Wade in Rhode Island, state law currently bans abortion coverage for Rhode Islanders on the state’s Medicaid plan and state employee health insurance, preventing 330,000 Rhode Islanders from using their health insurance to cover abortion. The Equality in Abortion Coverage Act that has been proposed in the Rhode Island General Assembly would end this ban.
