We Can Do Hard Things

07-03-2024 • 58 mins

What is happening in America – where apparently women who don’t want to be pregnant have to be pregnant, and women who want to be pregnant have to not be pregnant?!? In today’s conversation with Jessica Yellin, former chief White House Correspondent and founder of News Not Noise, we discuss exactly what happened in the recent Alabama ruling that halted IVF treatments, what it means for access to fertility treatments, which states could be next – and how it is all an attack on reproductive rights. We discuss the fetal personhood movement’s trajectory that would jeopardize birth control and even same-sex marriage.   We also talk about how to stay motivated and involved in these collective struggles (and the election season ahead) while also taking care of yourself.  Another must-listen on what is going on with Reproductive Justice in America – where we are, how we got here, and four things we need to do to get out of here, listen to Episode 108: ABORTION: Family Meeting on Four Things to Do Next About Jessica:  Jessica Yellin is the founder of News Not Noise, a pioneering Webby award-winning independent news brand.
