Just a few days before the 45th anniversary of the US Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision on January 22, the State Innovation Exchange (SiX) announced the launch of the Reproductive Freedom Leadership Council, a national network of US state legislators committed to leadership on reproductive rights.
State capitals have been central to the fight over reproductive freedom in recent years, and now, over 200 state legislators from 40 of the US’s 50 states have joined the Council and committed to promoting and protecting abortion rights in state legislatures.
