Note: Special thank you to Senators Aguon and Rodriguez for the recent introduction of Bill 412-32 which will add a gestational age requirement to the current abortion reporting law. Roe v Wade requires increasing legislative concern relative to the gestational age of the fetus.* This bill, should it pass, will assist the legislature and those who seek further protections for life in the womb in addressing that concern. A special thank you, also, to all the senators who will support it. 

A public hearing has already been held but supporting testimony may be still be sent to the committee chair, Senator Rodriguez, at senatordrodriguez@gmail.com, or Suite 107, 176 Serenu Ave., Tamuning, Guam 96931
