Today on Your Call: How have politics around reproductive rights changed since Roe v. Wade?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the status of women’s reproductive rights 39 years after Roe v. Wade legalized abortion.  Today’s political rhetoric is becoming more vitriolic over abortion. From personhood amendments to the closure of women’s clinics, what's happening at the state level across the country?  Who’s fighting back and how?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  What happened to the women’s movement of the 70s and the advances gained in women’s right to choose?   It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
