Gov. Jay Inslee declares Washington state an abortion ‘sanctuary,’ orders state police to help

From The Washington Times:

“Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has ordered state police not to comply with out-of-state agency requests for information on patients’ abortions in a bid to make the Evergreen State a “sanctuary” for the medical procedure.

“The directive came in the wake of the Supreme Court striking down Roe v. Wade and ending the decades-long constitutional protection for abortions. Several Republican-led states have trigger laws that will now bar abortions or severely restrict access to them.

“‘Washington is and will remain a sanctuary for any person seeking abortion care and services in our state, but we must act to protect our rights and our values,’ Mr. Inslee, a Democrat, wrote in the directive. ‘To that end, it is critical that our law enforcement agencies not cooperate in any manner with any out-of-state investigation, prosecution, or other legal action based on another state’s law that is inconsistent with Washington’s protections of the right to choose abortion and provide abortion-related care.'”
