Linda Weber helped found the Boulder Valley Health Center 50 years ago.

One out of three abortions in Colorado last year was for someone who traveled across state lines, according to the state health department.

Colorado has laws that enshrine access to abortion and gender-affirming procedures, while other states have imposed more restrictions since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last year.

Colorado Matters host Chandra Thomas-Whitfield spoke with Linda Weber, who was one of the first abortion counselors in America when she created a program at Boulder Valley Health Center 50 years ago.

Weber remembers a time before Roe v. Wade, and now a time after the landmark decision to reverse that decision.

Chandra also spoke with the Center’s chief executive officer and chief medical officer, Dr. Savita Ginde, about how the facility is handling the increase in out of state patients.
