Helena, MT- Senate Bill 154 made its way out of committee this week.
It attempts to remove the right to an abortion from the Montana Constitution, a right that's existed since a Supreme Court decision in 1999.
One issue here, is that the legislature can't amend the constitution with a law. Even if this bill passes, it wouldn't hold up in court.
U.S. Senator Jon Tester actually spoke out against this bill this week, reiterating his stance that a woman should have the right to make her own medical decision, and that this bill contradicts America's founding principle of freedom.
