Senator Anwar Releases Statement After Attending Tuesday Stop The Bans Rally

HARTFORD, CT - Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) issued the following statement after attending Tuesday’s “Stop The Bans” rally on the State Capitol’s front steps. The emergency rally comes as part of a national day of action in response to recent restrictive bans on abortion and abortion access passed and discussed in states including Alabama, Georgia, Ohio and Mississippi.

“It is hard to believe that in 2019, we are having conversations that we addressed as a society more than 40 years ago,” said Sen. Anwar. “We have a collective responsibility to make sure everyone’s rights are protected and, in the state of Connecticut, we need to send a strong message that we will not allow the rights of women to be restricted. As a physician, I strongly feel the healthcare decisions made between a woman and her physician are between them, and legislators have no business interfering in their personal decision.”
