Advocates and volunteers from all over the Commonwealth break out into teams to discuss the delegates and issues they will be meeting and speaking to lawmakers. Some of the bills they lobbied for support the Whole Woman’s Health Act, which says a woman has a fundamental right to access an abortion and no restrictions should be placed on this right, the Patient Trust Act, which allows women to waive their right to the mandatory waiting period before seeking an abortion, and the Birth Control Access Act, which allows doctors to write a prescription for a full year’s supply of oral contraceptives at one time.
