Listen In, Lubbock: Abortion rights in Texas
The U.S. Supreme Court recently overturned the nearly 50-year precedent set by Roe v. Wade. It gave pregnant people the right to choose to have an abortion. The court’s new decision returns the issue of abortion services to states for regulation. Now, Texans are learning what that means.
The Texas Tribune's Women's Health Reporter Eleanor Klibanoff explains what has happened and what we know about the future of abortion services in Texas. Later in the show, the director of Lubbock's Planned Parenthood Health Center, Angela Martinez, tells us about reproductive resources in Lubbock.
