Gov. Ned Lamont signed multiple laws Wednesday to protect reproductive rights in Connecticut.
The governor was at the state Capitol in Hartford with other state officials to sign legislation protecting medical providers who offer reproductive care for out-of- state patients - as well as a law that protects patients' information.
Lamont also signed laws allowing pharmacists to prescribe birth control and emergency contraceptives.
"With liberty and justice for all, these are the American values, and I love what we are doing in Connecticut standing tall, and hopefully other states follow under our lead," Lamont said.
The governor also enacted a law that will mandate higher education institutions to address students' reproductive needs.
Institutions are required to develop a plan by January 2024.
