You don’t want to miss the June meeting! This month’s meeting will feature the OC Women’s Coalition member extraordinaire, the Honorable Lynne Riddle, retired Federal Judge and former Coast Community College Trustee! Lynne will bring us up to date on what she is doing to ensure that women’s health is not jeopardized here in California.
As many of you are aware, a little over 1 year ago, St. Joseph Health System and Hoag Hospital Presbyterian affiliated; they did not merge. As a result of this affiliation, Hoag Hospital, immediately upon signing the affiliation contract with St. Joseph, instituted a “No Abortion” policy at their hospital, even if the woman’s life was at stake. Upon hearing about this, several pro-choice woman’s organizations coordinated efforts to protest this decision. The Attorney General’s office took notice and opened an investigation into this decision. As a result, the AG’s office came to a new agreement with Hoag Hospital, announcing this agreement this past March.
Since then, Lynne has been working tirelessly to ensure that women’s rights are upheld here in California. Lynne will bring us up to date with her meetings and hearing attendance in Sacramento, as well as with her meetings with the ACLU.
