Last week Ohioans approved Issue 1, a ballot measure adding reproductive rights to the state's constitution.  Michigan passed a similar measure last year – Proposal 3. 

But access to abortion isn’t just about keeping it legal. There are a slew of barriers that can make it difficult for someone to end a pregnancy — barriers like cost, waiting periods, and paperwork, just to name a few.

On this episode of the Stateside podcast, we talked about abortion access, the Reproductive Health Act, and what this all means for people seeking to end a pregnancy.
