LETTER: The Time is Now for an Underground Railroad for Women to Exercise Reproductive Rights

Submitted by Harald Hille, Riverside

Dear Editor,

Given the sweeping nature of the just announced overturning of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which established nation-wide protections for reproductive rights, and the efforts by at least some states to ban travel to abortion providers in other states, it is time to resurrect the mid-19th century “Underground Railroad” so women can fully and discretely exercise their reproductive rights despite the bans.
