Bill Resnick talking with Jenny Brown, author of the 2019 Verso book: "Without Apology: Abortion Struggles Today". They discuss why the reproductive rights movement of the 1960s and 70s demobilized, enabling "right to life" forces to gain the initiative and pursue their legislative and judicial strategy now on the verge of success. They also discuss how the reproductive rights and justice project is organizing to win both (a) the right to terminate an unwanted pregnancy, and (b) the social and economic supports (living wages, reduced work hours, universal medical care, child care programs) that are necessary to choose to have and raise children.
