Your Call: Reporting on refugees; reproductive health

image-892803-breitwandaufmacher-mcda.jpg

On the November 21st edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of the terrorist attacks in Paris. How are election year politics shaping media coverage of national security and the refugee crisis?

We’ll also discuss an IUD program in Colorado, which brought the teen birthrate and abortion down by 48 percent over five years. And because of clinic closures in Texas, up to 240,000 women have tried to give themselves abortions. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Dani McClain, contributing writer for The Nation and a fellow at The Nation Institute
