Today on Your Call: How do we respond to rollbacks of women's reproductive rights?
On today's Your Call we’ll honor International Women’s Day with a discussion about the status of women’s reproductive rights. States enacted a record number of abortion restrictions in 2011, and they continue to come out. Virginia just enacted a bill mandating ultrasound exams for women seeking abortions. Why are women’s reproductive rights being targeted now? And how are you responding? Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
