Action Alert - Public hearing on the abortion-related ordinance is on March 10

Bill 69-14, which would require an abortion provider to have admitting privileges at a local hospital, is scheduled to be heard March 10 at 6:00 p.m. Please contact your Council member in opposition to the bill and plan to attend the meeting. Direct emails to: and find additional contact information here: Meeting/hearing location: County-City Building, 4th floor, 227 W. Jefferson.

The League has and will continue to speak out against this bill, relying on the League's position that public policy ... must affirm the constitutional right of privacy of the individual to make reproductive choices and arguing that the bill is not about patient safety but about stopping abortions in St. Joseph County.
