The current state of abortion



It’s our birthday! Corbin & Katee are doctors now! But all is not so happy with the world…

A few weeks ago, Iowa became the most restrictive state in the nation for a woman’s right to choose. Fortunately, South Carolina didn’t. And on May 25th, Irish citizens will be voting on whether or not to repeal the 8th amendment to their constitution. Choosing to keep the amendment would continue to equate the life of a pregnant person with the life of the fetus causing patients who desire termination to leave their home country for care. Choosing to repeal the amendment would allow abortion to be legal in Ireland for the first time ever. Join the newly graduated doctors as we discuss the current state of abortion in the world.
