Continued Health Challenges Post “Dobbs”

Our featured guest is Sadaf Rahmani, the public affairs director of Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties. She speaks about the challenges of delivering reproductive health services in today’s complex regulatory framework, post SCOTUS’ “Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization” decision on June 24, 2022. With all the headwinds in which Planned Parenthood is navigating, public health trends are concerning: availability of emergency birth control methods, young adults seeking sterilization, and Fontana’s City Council imposing a moratorium on permitting a downtown Planned Parenthood care center. It is an enormously changed world since the previous public affairs director at Planned Parenthood was on this program July 30, 2019. Details for upcoming events are available:
