Republican Gov. Phil Scott will allow a bill that will permit all abortions for any reason in the state of Vermont to become law, said his spokeswoman.

“Governor Scott has always been pro-choice and he has said he will not veto the bill,” Rebecca Kelley told local Vermont news media last week.

Kelley did not say whether Scott would sign the bill or allow it to become law without acting upon it.

As VTDigger noted, the governor’s approval of the legislation will allow the state to enact the “broadest protections of reproductive rights” in the nation.

State - House - Majority - Leader - Rep

State House Majority Leader Rep. Jill Krowinski, a Democrat who is a former employee of Planned Parenthood — the vendor that provides the majority of abortions in Vermont — said, “I think it’s important that we’re standing up to say that we need to make sure that these rights are protected.”

In fact, the president of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England said Vermont is now “the shining example for all other states” of the unlimited abortion legislation that has become a mark of the Democrat Party.

Bill - H57 - Abortion - Right - Amendment

The bill, H.57, declares abortion a “fundamental right,” and an amendment known as Proposal 5 would make Vermont the first state to preserve and protect a right to “personal reproductive liberty” in the Green Mountain State’s Constitution.

While H.57 could become law and take effect immediately either with Scott’s signature or his inaction, Proposal 5 would need approval again by the General Assembly in 2021–2022 and then by the state’s voters in 2022 in order to amend Vermont’s Constitution.
