California hotline to provide legal help related to abortion


Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — California is joining with law firms and advocacy groups to create a hotline that provides access to information and pro bono services for people who need legal help related to abortion. The announcement Tuesday comes as the state seeks to become a safe haven for reproductive rights since Roe v. Wade was overturned. Attorney General Rob Bonta and officials with the Southern California Legal Alliance for Reproductive Justice say the legal landscape surrounding abortion has become confusing. The coalition seeks to give legal services to patients and care providers in places where abortion is restricted — including representation for anyone facing penalties for seeking, providing or assisting in reproductive care.
