Reproductive Rights and Reproductive Justice


Reproduction: it's as essential to life as breathing (more, actually), yet the right to make decisions regarding one’s reproduction is among the most divisive issues of our time. On this episode, Patrick Potyondy and Mark Sokolsky sit down with Mytheli SreenivasAlison Norris, and Molly Farrell to discuss the past, present, and future of reproductive rights and reproductive justice. What are “reproductive rights,” and how have they evolved over time? When, how, and why did abortion become such a controversial topic in the United States? How have people managed their reproduction throughout history, and what makes our situation today different? Join us as we address these and other questions in this month's edition of History Talk.
