Hey there, Kits! This is the Audio portion of our live YouTube stream. You can view it here: https://youtu.be/gngcULpo2k4?t=15
Just prior to Mother's Day, the media outlet Politico published a leak of a draft of the Supreme Court of the United States' (SCOTUS) decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
At the time, we brought together a panel of 5 thoroughly fascinating women, all of with whom, we had a frank discussion about how it had hit them, and they offered us a nothing but substance show.
So, now that we find ourselves once again shocked, yet unsurprised, that the law actually was stricken down, we follow up on the issue of access to abortion in Canada with Insiya Mankani, Public Affairs Officer for Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights, a progressive, pro-choice charitable organization committed to advancing and upholding sexual and reproductive health and rights in Canada and globally, and with Caryma Sa'd and Ashley Lindley we open it up to the broader issue of the fallout from the US decision, and how it might affect the matter here in Canada.
Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something.
Because we believe that Democracy Is Something You Do...
