    #190 Why Do I Need A Pro-Choice Coroner? Ft. Heidi Sieck

    In this episode, Amanda chats with Heidi Sieck, the founder of #VOTEPROCHOICE, an organization that empowers voters to select public officials who will actually support safe abortion access. Sieck explains just how many elected officials are involved in securing -- or denying -- your right to reproductive freedom, from your mayor to your sheriff, local coroner and even the state agricultural commissioner. Sieck also shares the path through which abortion could become illegal in the U.S., and how shockingly far along that path we are. 

    #VOTEPROCHOICE streamlines local election information to expose anti-choice mechanisms at work all around us, to ensure we’re actually voting down-ballot in ways that protect the right to choose. Learn more at voteprochoice.us

    Note: This episode was recorded before Sen. Kamala Harris suspended her bid for the presidency, dating one of our references.
