Roe’s End Could Overwhelm Foster Care

From a story on axios.com by Mike Allen headlined “Roe’s end could overwhelm foster care”:

Underfunded and overstressed foster-care systems will likely have more children sent their way with the end of federal abortion protection, Axios’ Russell Contreras writes.

  • Why it matters: About 424,000 children are in foster care on any given day. They already face shortages of placements, low high school graduation rates, and disproportionately high rates of incarnation and homelessness.

“We’re really concerned that this could blow it up,” Mariah Craven of the National Foster Youth Institute told Axios.
