SB 552: State-Mandated Lies about Abortion & Political Overreach into Litigation

SB 552 was the major anti-abortion bill of the session. It would have required health care providers to tell dangerous lies to their patients. In the end, it became a vehicle to challenge litigation aimed at restoring abortion rights. We opposed this.
