麻州州長查理貝克簽行政命令 保護婦女墮胎權

麻州州長Charlie Baker 藉推特告訴麻州人民他支持婦女的墮胎權。
(Boston Orange 編譯) 麻州州長查理貝克 (Charlie Baker) 未回應美國最高法院推翻了 Roe V Wade裁決,今 (23) 日簽署了行政命令,以保護人們在麻州獲得生產醫療服務的機會。

             查理貝克表示,「我對最高法院今天的決定深感失望,這將對住在美國各地的婦女有重大影響,限制了她們可獲得的醫療保險服務。麻州在保護婦女選擇即獲得生育醫療保險服務的權利上,一直是領袖,而其他州卻把這罪犯化了,或者只給予有限的服務。

             查理貝克說,「這行政命令將進一步保存這權力,並保護為麻州以外居民服務的生育醫療護理提供者。在最高法院裁決推翻了未回應美國最高法院推翻了 Roe V Wade裁決之際,確保麻州服務提供者可以繼續提供生育醫療服務,而不需恐懼其他州的法令可能被用來干預那些服務,或禁止他們提供在麻州是合法的服務。

             麻州副州長白莉朵 (Karen Polito)也說,「我們為麻州確保人們獲得生育醫療護理的歷史,感到非常驕傲,經由簽署行政命令等行動,麻州在保護婦女選擇權上又再領路前行。

             有幾個州已經立法,把提供墮胎,以及其他生育醫療服務定為犯罪行為。

             這行政命令將禁止任何行政部門機構協助其他州調查個人或實體,接受或提供在麻州是合法的生育醫療服務。

             這命令也保護麻州提供生育醫療服務的供應者,不致於因為提供生育醫療服務而失去專業證照,或者因為潛在的外州費用受到其他專業處罰。

             在這行政命令下,當其他州要求遣送,以刑事處罰在麻州接受,協助或執行生育醫療服務的個別人士時,麻州將不會合作。

Governor Baker Signs Executive Order to Protect Access to Reproductive Health Care Services

 

BOSTON – Today, in response to the US Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v Wade, Governor Charlie Baker signed an executive order to protect access to reproductive health care services in the Commonwealth.

 

“I am deeply disappointed in today’s decision by the Supreme Court which will have major consequences for women across the country who live in states with limited access to reproductive health care services. The Commonwealth has long been a leader in protecting a woman’s right to choose and access to reproductive health services, while other states have criminalized or otherwise restricted access,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “This executive order will further preserve that right and protect reproductive health care providers who serve out of state residents. In light of the Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v Wade, it is especially important to ensure that Massachusetts providers can continue to provide reproductive health care services without concern that the laws of other states may be used to interfere with those services or sanction them for providing services that are lawful in the Commonwealth.”

 

“We are proud of the Commonwealth’s history of ensuring access to reproductive health care, and will continue to do so, despite today’s ruling from the Supreme Court,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “With these actions, Massachusetts is once again leading the way in protecting a woman’s right to choose.”

 

Several other states have imposed laws that would criminalize providing abortions and other reproductive health services, and this executive order would protect providers who perform these services for out of state individuals as well as individuals from out of state who seek services that are lawful in Massachusetts.

 

The order prohibits any Executive Department agencies from assisting another state’s investigation into a person or entity for receiving or delivering reproductive health services that are legal in Massachusetts.

 

The order also protects Massachusetts providers who deliver reproductive health care services from losing their professional licenses or receiving other professional discipline based on potential out of state charges.

 

Under the executive order, the Commonwealth will not cooperate with extradition requests from other states pursuing criminal charges against individuals who received, assisted with, or performed reproductive health services that are legal in Massachusetts.
