Your Call: How are women countering anti-abortion laws?

Feb 12, 2015


  How are women countering anti-abortion laws? On the February 12th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about Vessel, a film that follows Rebecca Gomperts, a Dutch doctor who defies anti-abortion laws around the globe by providing services on a ship in international waters. Her group Women on Waves has worked with women in 23 countries and is now educating women about abortions online. What is the current state of abortion access worldwide? And with so many restrictions in the US, what happens to American women who are denied abortions? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Diana Whitten, director/producer of Vessel

 Jodi Jacobsen, president and editor in chief, RH Reality Check
