STOP RESOLUTION 30-18

On September 4th, your County Councilmen are voting on Resolution 30-18.

The Anne Arundel Huddle Network opposes Anne Arundel County Council Resolution 30-18, “recognizing and declaring the humanity of preborn children.” This resolution, if passed, would set a precedent for  rolling back the reproductive rights of women in our county and the right for women to make personal health decisions for themselves. This resolution also proposes to collect information on mental health treatment of women in Anne Arundel County who have terminated a pregnancy.

If you would like to have a say, it is imperative for you to contact your county councilman and voice your opposition to this resolution before the vote on Sept. 4th.  Please let him know your address and that you are one of his constituents. Please ask your friends and neighbors, including the men in your life, to do the same. Spread the news to everyone you know in the county.  We need everyone to speak up NOW, and say NO!

The councilmen planning to vote YES especially need to know about your opposition to Resolution 30-18.  If you don’t live in their district, but know someone who does, please ask them to send them an email or call.

These include:

  • Jerry Walker, District 7 – District 7 includes Crofton and all areas in the county south of Rt. 450. (jerry.walker@aacounty.org, 410-222-1401)

  • John Grasso, Council District 2, and Maryland District 32 (Linthicum, Ferndale, Glen Burnie, Severn, Jessup, Maryland City, Fort Meade, and Odenton excluding Piney Orchard.) Mr. Grasso is currently running for the state senate and should listen to all potential voters in District 32. (john.grasso@aacounty.org, 410-222-1401)
