As a resident of Maine I am writing concerning a proposed bill to expand abortion to full-term in the state.

The overturning of Roe vs. Wade by the Supreme Court shifted the protection of Maine’s most vulnerable residents, the unborn, to state lawmakers across the nation. The current Maine law is quite broad already and covers procedures after 24 weeks if deemed medically necessary for the health of the mother.

The proposed bill is extreme and does not contribute to protecting the lives of innocent, unborn lives who can not speak for themselves.

Rather than promote pro-death legislation in Maine, as residents who value life and families, through this publication I encourage others to support lawmakers, organizations, bills and policies that will support and protect family values and the sanctity of human life at any stage, making Maine a true refuge state.
