Seasoned Activists will discuss continuing to organize to maintain–and expand–rights under a Trump administration and a right wing Congress, with a focus on women’s rights. Guests: Terry O’Neill, Loretta Ross, Jenny Brown, Farah Diaz-Tello

Today, January 22, 2017 is the 44th Anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court Decision Roe v Wade, that legalized abortion in the U.S. We’ll look at the state of that hard-earned constitutional right in the U.S. today and also at the roots of the movement for legalized abortion and what we can learn from it today.

The program will feature recorded pieces relevant to the Roe Anniversary: including actual sound of the 1969 Redstockings Abortion Speakout, where women publicly admitted they’d had abortions, when it was still illegal.

News stories will include: New Republican Congress tries to outlaw abortion through a “Fetal Heartbeat Bill” and goes after defunding Violence Against Women Shelters as well as Planned Parenthood.
