Janet Mills says she could propose state constitutional amendment on abortion

PORTLAND, Maine — Gov. Janet Mills may perhaps thrust an modification to the Maine Constitution to enshrine abortion rights if she wins reelection in November, she reported Wednesday.

The Democratic governor’s comments extra specifics to her roadmap through a high-profile November matchup with previous Gov. Paul LePage, an anti-abortion Republican. She and her party have set her abortion-rights stances and Maine’s liberal established of regulations at the heart of the race just after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned federal abortion legal rights in June.

At a rally on Wednesday, Mills instructed reporters she “didn’t have a legislative plan” to enshrine a latest executive get on abortion legal rights into Maine regulation, but reported her office environment was on the lookout into no matter whether the Maine Constitution currently provides a ideal to abortion.
