Today: Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its Action Fund are very concerned about this week's "leak" of a draft of a majority opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court which -- if it would become official -- would strike down federal abortion protections. Jennifer Allen is the CEO of Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocate Great Northwest and is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the implications of a high-court decision, along with any restrictions which may be made by the Indiana General Assembly. "Post-Tribune" freelance reporter Carole Carlson is also on the program with the stories she put out in print and online, including news of a meeting coming up May 18th in Gary called by the state agency which turned control of the Gary Community Schools over to a management firm.
