In 2021, abortion access is still in the news; from our founding, the conversation around reproductive rights has been one of the most contentious political debates in America. This history is one that combines political, religious, and social forces, layered with systemic racism and misogyny.

Wade, all the way to the present day.

This is a safe place for women.

I can’t stress this enough, you are doing the world a favor by existing and communicating something so unfairly stigmatized and made evil. Thank you.

Thank you!! Amazing work

These women know what’s UP. Especially now, this podcast is beyond important. I so appreciate the thoughtfulness, care, and research that clearly goes into this show. All of the people voting one star have obviously not listened, but I hope they so we can attempt at having real, honest conversations like the ones these women have on the show.
