About #Abortion w/ @CarolSangerNYC — #KatieSpeakShow Ep88 05/13/2017

In brief: While we may not yet be living in “The Handmaid’s Tale” (seriously, get a Hulu trial and watch it if you haven’t read it), the groundwork is being implemented. Brilliant, delightful lawyer/author Carol Sanger is on for an extended conversation about the cultural imposition of abortion silence (as opposed to the personal choice of privacy) and how we can begin to change it by opening up to each other.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
