Anti-Abortion Group Urges States To Pass Sweeping Criminalization Laws Post Roe


Model state legislation proposed by a leading anti-choice group would impose felony charges for a broad new set of activities related to abortion. In a memo published last week, National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) urges states to adopt a sweeping anti-abortion law that includes both civil, licensing, and criminal penalties. “Any person who so much as even talks about how to obtain an abortion is going to be thrown in jail,” said Marty of the proposed law. Since Politico published a leaked draft of the Supreme Court opinion in May, a growing number of prosecutors have pledged not to enforce their state abortion bans. If adopted, NRLC’s proposed legislation would create a vast enforcement and criminalization framework that will cut off “every piece of information or assistance” to pregnant people, said Marty.
