Beyond the Pain of #Endometriosis w/ @Ms_creilly #1in10 — #KatieSpeakShow Ep129 4/14/2018

In brief: Law student/reproductive health advocate Caroline Reilly is back on the show, this time in two parts! In part one this week, she delves into the way the #1in10 American women with endometriosis are treated by our health “care” system and shares her personal story as well as those of others. Come back next week when she digs into her current research with If/When/How on foster teens and access to reproductive healthcare. Even if you’re accustomed to how teens are treated when it comes to contraception and abortion, prepared to be surprised. Our country needs to start recognizing the agency of its young people — and fast.
