House speaker wants to give Maryland voters a choice on constitutional right to abortion

February 7, 2023

House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones introduced a bill that would ask voters if they want to enshrine the right to an abortion in the Maryland constitution. A draft of the bill, which was introduced at a perfunctory House session Monday, states “every person, as a central component of an individual’s rights to liberty and equality, has the fundamental right to reproductive freedom including but not limited to the ability to make and effectuate decisions to prevent, continue, or end one’s own pregnancy.”
