It’s OK to Ask Detained Tourists About Abortions, US Border Agency Says – https://www.vice.com/en/article/7k8e7z/madolline-gourley-abortion-customs-and-border-protection-lax?utm_source=pocket_mylist
"An Australian tourist who was deported from the US after being asked whether she had recently had an abortion has been told by Custom and Borders Protection (CBP) that agents acted properly in their interactions with her.
Madolline Gourley was transiting through Los Angeles International Airport at the end of June on her way to Canada when she was detained over suspicions she had breached the conditions of the visa waiver programme.
While detained she was asked by a CBP agent whether she was pregnant – she wasn’t – and whether she had recently had an abortion. Just days earlier, Roe v. Wade had been overturned by the US Supreme Court, the 1973 court case that legalised abortion across the US. However, abortion remained legal in California, Australia, and Canada, where Gourley, 32, was due to cat-sit in exchange for a holiday."
