Your Call: How should the pro-choice movement reframe abortion?

 

  

On the October 20th edition of Your Call, we’re continuing our discussion about how the pro-choice movement should reframe the abortion debate. The Nation columnist Katha Pollitt will join us in-studio to discuss her new book Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights. Forty years after the landmark Roe V Wade ruling, “abortion” is still a word that is said with hostility. In recent years, more than 200 state laws have passed to restrict abortion access. How would you re-frame abortion? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
