New Year, Same Abortion Debate

KFF Health News’ “What the Health?” discusses the ongoing debate on abortion, a new law in California that helps out-of-state doctors receive reproductive health training, and ballot initiatives on abortion. The debate is coming to a head in light of a federal appeals court ruling doctors in Texas are not required to perform abortions during medical emergencies. The Supreme Court is expected to look into similar cases. In another case, private equity-owned hospitals have seen an increase in patient events after being acquired. Plus, medical misinformation expert RFK Jr. has been named PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year. This week’s episode hosts Sandro Galea, dean of the Boston University School of Public Health, and panelists Julie Rovner, Lauren Weber, Shefali Luthra, and Victoria Knight.
