FEATURING ROBIN MARTY – Among the things that House Democrats are vowing to do with their new political power is to roll back the increasing restrictions on abortion access under President Donald Trump. In particular they want to reverse the ban on federal funding for organizations that offer abortion services.
But already there is bleak landscape across the US when it comes to abortion access. Anti-choice activists have had great success in restricting a woman’s right to abortion at the state level with new bills being proposed all the time. They have their eye on reversing the popular and critically important Supreme Court decision Roe. Vs. Wade.
What would happen if abortion became illegal in the US? My guest Robin Marty asks and answers that question in her new book Handbook for a Post-Roe America – a guidebook of sorts for women who might see an end to abortion rights in their lifetime, but also for those who currently live in states where abortion access has been effectively decimated.
