Your Call: What is life like for abortion providers?

Aug 3, 2015

On the August 3rd edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with David Cohen and Krysten Connon about their new book, Living in the Crosshairs: The Untold Stories of Anti-Abortion Terrorism.

Since 1993, eight abortion providers have been murdered. Several others have been assaulted by anti-abortion violence. What will it take to stop violence against abortion clinics and their employees? We’ll also get an update on the Planned Parenthood attack videos. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Merle Hoffman, award-winning journalist, activist, and women's health care pioneer, and  author of “Intimate Wars: The Life and Times of the Woman Who Brought Abortion from the Back Alley to the Boardroom.” 

David Cohen, associate professor at the Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law, and co-author of “Living in the Crosshairs: The Untold Stories of Anti-Abortion Terrorism.”
