(Warwick, RI)  --  Governor Gina Raimondo held a bill-signing ceremony for three women's health care bills on Thursday. One law requires health insurers to provide a full year of access to contraceptive care, another aims to remove barriers to safe and affordable mastectomies, and the third allows pregnant minors to access prenatal care without parental consent. Speaking at the Women's Health Practice at Kent County Hospital, Raimondo referenced the presidential nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court and said proactive steps must be taken to protect women's rights. She encouraged the General Assembly once again to pass the Reproductive Health Care Act to enshrine the protections of Roe v. Wade in state law.
