Washington State Department Of Health Prepares For Increase In Abortion Requests

Deputy Secretary of Health Lacy Fehrenbach says the department is working with reproductive service providers to ensure access to abortion services for anyone who comes to the state.

Fehrenbach says data shows policies that restrict access to abortions lead to an increase in unsafe procedures.
