LD 327, a personhood bill, would have granted legal rights to a fetus which would undermine reproductive rights and create confusion in Maine law. The bill was defeated. A “no” vote is the pro-Planned Parenthood vote.

LD 1237 requires insurance companies to cover up to 12 months of birth control at one time and incorporates the ACA requirement that insurance companies provide copay-free birth control into Maine law. The bill became law; a “yes” vote is the pro-Planned Parenthood vote.
