BE THE CHANGE: Robin Marty, author of New Handbook for a Post-Roe America

With the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade Americans once again find themselves fighting for bodily autonomy and basic human rights. This fight is not new and the long history of activism in support of abortion rights can inform what we do going forward both in terms of making sure people get the healthcare they need now and changing the system so these rights are never threatened again.
