Short Description: 
40 Years since Roe v Wade - an assessment of women's reproductive rights

Roe v Wade was the landmark decision which legalized abortion in the first trimester, throughout the US.  The case allowed that some restrictions could be set by individual states, in the second and third trimesters. The basis of this decision was recognition of a woman's essential right to privacy in speaking with her doctor about her reproductive health care. 

Ani and Lyn look at what's happened in the 40 years since that decision with women's reproductive rights, and the right to privacy.  They will be talking with Sarah Erdreich, author of Generation Roe: Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice Movement.

Sarah is a women's health advocate and writer. She has been identified as a leading pro-choice activist by Newsweek, and her incisive writings on abortion rights have been noted by Jezebel, Feministing, and the National Partnership for Women and Families. She has worked for several prominent pro-choice organizations, and has been published in On The Issues, Lilith, Feminists For Choice, and RH Reality Check. She has also worked editorially with the magazines HUES and Teen Voice. Generation Roe is her first book.
