The notion that Article 22 and Roe v. Wade are similar is false.
The hot-button issue is drawing big money and campaigning. Vermont and California are the first left-leaning states to put a constitutional amendment to a general election vote since Roe v. Wade was overturned.
The overstated hypotheticals provided in the flier are just the tack that Vermont pro-lifers had told us a few months ago that they were going to use to oppose the reproductive rights amendment to the state constitution.
Roe v. Wade attempted to balance the interests of the mother, the unborn child, and the state. In Vermont, however, the Legislature is taking us in the opposite direction.
State government, Planned Parenthood and public school officials are stepping in as surrogate parents, using the public schools as their market.
