Abortion Access and Reproductive Justice in a Post-Roe Landscape

Abortion access and reproductive justice in a post-roe landscape

Our award-winning podcast The Response is back with a new 2-part audio documentary!

Abortion access has always been limited here in the United States, but since Roe v. Wade was overturned in June of this year and the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision held that the Constitution does NOT confer a right to abortion — things have gotten dramatically worse — especially in parts of the Southern United States, the Great Plains, and Midwest.

In the face of trigger laws banning and criminalizing abortion in many states — as well as state-sanctioned harassment and targeted campaigns against people seeking abortions — the centuries-old movement for reproductive rights and justice has only grown and strengthened.

“Abortion Access and Reproductive Justice in a Post-Roe Landscape,” takes a deep dive into how communities are responding to the growing abortion access crisis in the United States, sharing the stories of those impacted and highlighting a number of radical grassroots, mutual aid, and solidaristic efforts aimed at helping people access abortion in the places where it’s currently outlawed or restricted.

In addition to its release on The Response podcast, “Abortion Access and Reproductive Justice in a Post-Roe Landscape” will air on the Making Contact radio show in November of 2022 reaching 150 radio stations across the United States, Canada, and Australia. The full station listing can be found here.
