Letter: Opposed to taxpayer funding for abortion on demand

Posted

I am writing in strong opposition to taxpayer funding for abortion on demand in Rhode Island. 

There is a bill in the state legislature (S2549 and H7442) which will allocate your tax dollars to pay for other people's abortions. This will be done through the state administered Medicaid program and through the state employees' health insurance program.

If you also object to your taxes being used in this way, then let your voice be heard!
