A 2011 Planned Parenthood rally in New York City.

A 2011 Planned Parenthood rally in New York City.

Last week, Maryland became the first state in the country to guarantee that local Planned Parenthood locations will be reimbursed by the state if federal funding is cut. The bill became law after Governor Larry Hogan allowed the deadline to either sign or veto the legislation to pass without action. The law puts Maryland at the forefront of the national debate regarding states rights and public funding for family planning services and abortion. Kojo explores what the newly-passed law protecting Planned Parenthood means for Maryland and the region.

WAMU 88.5 is exploring the local impact of the new administration. Learn more about The Trump Effect.
