Description

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. From Wonder Media Network, co-hosts Kate Kelly and Jamia Wilson unpack this rich history from the views of colonial America, to seminal Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, all the way to the present day.

“The legacy of the transatlantic slave trade, and the domestic slave breeding industry has never left us. It’s at the foundation of a system that continues to oppress and constrict female bodies. Particularly Black bodies.”
