Roe v. Wade is in jeopardy. This week Politico published a draft Supreme Court decision that, if issued, would overturn the landmark abortion ruling Roe v Wade. It would immediately ban or restrict access to abortion for people in about half the states. What are abortion rights advocates doing to prepare? In California, they are preparing to create an abortion sanctuary state open to people from across the country.
On this week’s episode of the News Not Noise Podcast, we speak with Planned Parenthood Los Angeles’ Sue Dunlap, who discusses the steps her clinic is taking to ensure people in other states can travel to Los Angeles to seek abortion there, at no cost to them. She also discusses the impact this decision could have on businesses, the training of medical students, and other rights we take for granted.
Dunlap is the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. She is also a former Deputy Political Director of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund in Washington, D.C.
