About this Episode

Hillary and Tina cover Roe vs. Wade and the history of abortion in America.

Hillary’s Story
Throughout the early history of America, abortion was permitted. BUT when women began to seek more rights, more restriction on abortion gets enacted.

Tina’s Story
Roe vs. Wade made a woman’s right to choose a private issue and ensured safe access to abortion. BUT despite that republican law makers have fought to restrict abortion access in America.
