Our bill, the Women’s Health Protection Act, would protect against unconstitutional laws like Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban – laws that attack people’s freedom to make decisions about their own bodies and which directly contradict decades of Supreme Court precedent,” said the Members. “Our legislation reaffirms what the Supreme Court established fifty years ago: access to abortion is a fundamental right. We look forward to formally reintroducing our legislation with the support of our colleagues in the coming weeks.”WHPA guarantees a pregnant person’s right to access an abortion—and the right of an abortion provider to deliver these abortion services—free from medically unnecessary restrictions that interfere with a patient’s individual choice or the provider-patient relationship.center_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Make a comment Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Business News HerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyCostume That Makes Actresses Beneath Practically UnrecognizableHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeauty Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimeslast_img read more

The first guest of the evening was Buddy Miller sitting in on “Up On Cripple Creek” and bringing the crowd to their feet yet again for what would become a night of joyous celebration for everyone who was lucky to be there. Keeping that momentum going with “Ophelia”, Teddy Thompson came out to join the band and put his energetic stamp on a classic.After a couple of softer jams, Larry invited Anderson East to the stage to lead the crowd in a cover of Van Morrison’s “Caravan”. Anderson’s raspy voice along with an incredible four-piece horn section left fans screaming for more!The guests just keep coming; next up was Howard Johnson, who performed on the original documentary 40 years ago, he brought that deep sound and the band rallied around him to bring the heat with a rousing “Rag Mama Rag”.Next up, Lucinda Williams who delighted the crowd with her soulful sound under the beautiful Manhattan skyline. Watch her lead “It Makes No Difference” in the video below.On to the next one, Bob Weir was a late addition to the lineup last week and we are all very happy he came. Bobby came out and crushed the bluesy “Further On Up the Road”. He is still on fire from the Dead & Company tour, and it showed last night.But the big names kept coming; Dr. John came in and played one his originals “Such a Night” – the same as he did forty years ago. Mac also played earlier this week at Aaron Neville’s 75th Birthday party at Brooklyn Bowl.Campbell did a great job leading the band and really shined during his guitar solo late into the set. He then brought together all his guests for the Dylan classic “Forever Young”. Giving all those powerful voices the opportunity to shine was pure joy to see. They finished the night off with an all-star everyone sing-a-long version of “The Weight” that took everyone back 40 years.last_img read more
