Local Planned Parenthood speaks on Mississppi abortion law

On Wednesday, protestors gathered outside the Supreme Court building as the Justices listened to a landmark case on whether or not to uphold a Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks.

People on both sides of the argument came out to voice their opinions. We spoke with the President and CEO of Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood about this Chelly Hegan says she is concerned about women dying in states where they may not have access to safe abortions. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, Hegan adds that women will not be able to decide when and how they start a family.

“Considering over 70% of Americans still believe that Roe should be the law of the land, it’s outrageous that we’re continuing to fight like this over a very popular and accepted principal that women have access to abortion when and how they need it,” said Hegan.

New York Right to Life tells NewsChannel 13, today’s case may be the beginning of the end for abortion.
