Proposal 5 passes

Vermont- Reproductive rights will now be written into the state constitution to protect and prevent future restrictions on reproductive care. This comes after proposal 5 was passed with a 76% to 24% vote.


This was one of the most debated topics on the ballot this year after the overture of Roe. V Wade. What this means for Vermonters is that they now have protected reproductive choice without government interference, unless justified by a compelling state interest. 

The right to abortion is protected under state law due to a law passed in 2019 that allows reproductive liberty for all Vermonters. Article 22 makes Vermont one of the first states to have abortion and reproductive autonomy protected in it's constitution.


Proposal 2 results.
