A vital story on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
A new video series published on BillMoyers.com titled “No Choice” highlights the abortion stories of eight women through their emotional testimonies. The videos highlight the history of abortion rights in the United States, the impact of this struggle on the lives of women, especially those holding marginalized identities, and contextualize these stories in light of our volatile political climate, which threatens reproductive rights and Roe v. Wade.
81 year old author Marge Piercy fell in love during her freshman year of college. It was 1953 and contraception was illegal in most states, especially for unmarried women. When she became pregnant, she had no choice but to take matters into her own hands—and it almost killed her.
Watch the video below.
