About Abortion (Carol Sanger)

[Original release: 12 May 2017] Since the 1973 Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade, abortion has been legal in the United States. But terminating pregnancy remains a controversial issue, and it plays a surprisingly large role in American politics. In this episode, we talk to Carol Sanger, professor of law at Columbia University and author of 'About Abortion: Terminating Pregnancy in 21st Century America' about why abortion is such a prominent political issue in the United States and how we might expect the Trump administration to deal with reproductive rights.

Interview with: Professor Carol Sanger (Columbia University)

Carol Sanger, “About Abortion: Terminating Pregnancy in Twenty-First-Century America”

November 2, 2017 at the Boston Athenæum.

One of the most private decisions a woman can make, abortion is also one of the most contentious topics in American civic life. Protested at rallies and politicized in party platforms, terminating pregnancy is often characterized as a selfish decision by women who put their own interests above those of the fetus. This background of stigma and hostility has stifled women’s willingness to talk about abortion, which in turn distorts public and political discussion. To pry open the silence surrounding this public issue, Sanger distinguishes between abortion privacy, a form of nondisclosure based on a woman’s desire to control personal information, and abortion secrecy, a woman’s defense against the many harms of disclosure.

Play

Last month, Lindy West joined Papercuts for an event for the paperback release of SHRILL, her book of essays about the making of a funny feminist, coming of age in a culture that’s hostile to women, especially fat women.

It was wonderful to have Lindy join us with 450 fans at the First Church JP in April. But before her event, Lindy discussed reproductive rights and her project Shout Your Abortion with Carol Sanger, author of ABOUT ABORTION.

Carol Sanger is the Barbara Aronstein Black Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, and her book Abort Abortion takes readers on an insightful, original, and eye-opening guided tour of the practices, culture, and legislation behind terminating pregnancy in twenty-first century America.

Lindy West is a pop culture critics and comedian and a weekly columnist at the guardian. SHRILL is a new York times bestseller and was named a Best Book of the Year by NPR, Esquire, the LA Times, and Newsweek. 

Copies of SHRILL and ABOUT ABORTION are for sale in-store at Papercuts J.P. at 5 Green Street in Boston, or online at papercutsjp.com. Thanks for supporting your local independent bookstore.
