The Supreme Court heard a case Wednesday from Mississippi challenging Roe vs. Wade. BPR looks at the level of abortion access currently in Western North Carolina.
Planned Parenthood spokesperson Molly Rivera says there isn’t access to abortion in the majority of North Carolina.
“In North Carolina, 91 percent of counties in our state do not have an abortion provider,” said Rivera.
The only abortion provider in Western North Carolina is a Planned Parenthood location in Asheville.
