Journalist and author Robin Marty (@robinmarty) joins us to discuss her new book, Handbook For A Post-Roe America. Between state-level restrictions and the possibility that Roe v Wade could be overturned, abortion will soon be illegal in some or all of the US. But according to Marty, Roe getting overturned could actually result in increased engagement around thie issue. In this book, she goes over the ways regular people can fight back against anti-choice policy, from making it an issue in the run-up to 2020, to participating in underground networks that help people get the care that they need. This future is neither distant nor hypothetical, so we need to start organizing now.
