Program Topic: Who are Independent Abortion Providers with Jennifer Thibodeau

March 10th is Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. To recognize this important day, Jennifer Thibodeau from the Abortion Care Network joins us on this episode. We discuss what it means to be an independent abortion provider, like Mabel Wadsworth Center, and we explore the challenges we face as a movement.

We switch things up a bit in our “Ask Mabel” segment – this month we ask Andrea Irwin, executive director of Mabel Wadsworth Center, to explain how defunding Planned Parenthood will impact Mabel’s and what would happen in Maine if Roe v. Wade were overturned.
