U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene, D-Wash., issued a statement explaining how overturning Roe v. Wade further amplifies the need to "swiftly pass a strong" federal privacy law. DelBene said Congress "can't afford to wait" on a law because "our tech laws are so behind." She also noted how the impacts on women's online privacy from the pending Supreme Court decision could be best addressed through a national privacy standard. She said sensitive data risks include "internet searches about reproductive health care including abortions, menstrual tracking and other women’s health apps, and which medical facilities a woman has visited." Editor's note: DelBene joined The Privacy Advisor Podcast June 2021 to discuss potential federal legislation.
