#AppreciateProviders w/Proactive Prochoice Legislation — #KatieSpeakShow Ep28 03/12/2016

In brief: After the heavy discussion about the reality on the ground in Texas and the Whole Woman’s Health case at SCOTUS, I wanted to celebrate National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers (#NDAAP) by talking about pro-active legislation! You’ve probably heard me talk/read my writing on #4EACHOfUs and the Reproductive FACT Act (aka “fake clinics can’t lie” law); this project at the Public Leadership Institute created model legislation to do similar work expanding access to reproductive healthcare!
