A Conversation: Doctors Practicing in a Post-Roe World

Register here for the Zoom Program

Florida Legislature has passed a 6 week limit on abortion.  Amendment 4, on the 2024 General Election ballot, if passed, will let doctors, not the politicians, guide patients in making their personal healthcare decisions. What happens when a ban on abortions goes into effect?

Join us for a conversation with two physicians who personally deal with the impact of politics on reproductive rights.


Dr. Misa Perron-Burdick, OB/GYN, was practicing in San Francisco, California, then moved to Boise, Idaho, two weeks before Roe was overturned. After the US Supreme Court decision Idaho quickly enacted an absolute ban on abortion. Dr Perron-Burdick handles high risk pregnancies and delivery complications and is on the front line observing the impacts of the abortion ban on a doctor’s ability to practice medicine and its impact ob/gyn healthcare for the women of Idaho.

Dr. Marian Sampson, OB/GYN, works with Planned Parenthood of Southwest-Central Florida. Dr. Sampson was a teen mother at 18, and her experience with her personal physician inspired her to become a doctor and ob/gyn herself. Dr. Sampson grew up in Mississippi. She graduated from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, and completed her obstetrics & gynecology residency at St. Petersburg Bayfront Medical.
