Well, the veto for HB 3284 has been overidden. This is of course really bad news.
I was present in the senate chamber as the overide took place yesterday along with around 30 or so pink clad pro-choice men and women. We would like to thank Senators Andrew Rice, Jim Wilson, Judy Eason McIntyre, Constance Johnson, Tom Adelson, and (not without a hint of surprise) Jim Reynolds for putting forth a good debate for us as well as the other 9 senators that voted our way.
It was a sad sight to watch, but The Center for Reproductive Rights will more than likely get it declared unconstitutional (for the second time). Our fingers are crossed.
And to the Senators that saw fit to deprive women of their medical privacy, their right by law...all I have to say is that it is an election year. Until then, enjoy as the rest of the nation yet again declares you a laughing stock, as well as this great state that you sully with this ridiculous legislation.
