Reproductive Freedom - PG:CC with Planned Parenthood’s Alexis McGill Johnson

The PoliticsGirl Podcast

Today’s podcast is a candid conversation with Alexis McGill Johnson, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood. We are living at volatile time in American history. One entire party is hellbent on taking us backward into the worst parts of our country’s past filled with racism, homophobia, inequality and the subjugation of women. Since the reversal of Roe v. Wade, every day is a new affront to the value of women and those who require reproductive rights in our society. Every day comes with a fresh new story of archaic, backward laws and the trauma of the real people who have to live under these laws. Being female in America has never been easy, but with THIS Republican Party and THIS supreme court our lives, and the lives of those who can give birth, have become the newest cannon fodder in the culture wars.
