The Daily Buzz: Utah women speak about their abortions

Abortion rights are increasingly in the spotlight as the U.S. Supreme Court looks poised to overturn the decision in Roe v. Wade this summer. In this episode, reporter Becky Jacobs joins managing editor Grant Burningham to share the experiences of four Utah women who have had abortions.

Innovation Lab reporter Kaitlyn Bancroft also discusses how Utahns are doing in keeping the state’s air clean, and I highlight education reporter Courtney Tanner’s story about a Utah mother who is suing the Iron County School District for handing her child off to a stranger.

Finally, COVID-19 cases are on the rise, and both Utah Gov. Spencer Cox and House Speaker Brad Wilson tested positive last week and were reportedly experiencing mild symptoms.

Hear all of these stories in the Monday, May 16, episode of ‘The Daily Buzz’ podcast. You can listen to both today’s episode and past episodes on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and SoundCloud.
