What can be done to support access to abortion services? On the next Your Call we'll talk about guaranteeing the legacy of Dr. George Tiller, assassinated in his church for providing abortions to women who wanted them. Eight abortion providers have been killed in the last thirty years and 87 percent of U.S. counties have no abortion provider.
