With the seemingly imminent repeal of Roe v. Wade in the United States, it’s time to refamiliarize ourselves with Canada’s long fought history for abortion access. And explore how that story is anything but ancient history, with one provincial ban being overturned as recently as four years ago.
Today’s episode features just a few of the people who have been on the frontlines of that fight as well as a historian who studies nothing but reproductive justice.
Featured in this episode: Christabelle Sethna, professor in the Feminist and Gender Studies Faculty of Social Sciences University of Ottawa; Deb Miller, retired family lawyer and abortion access advocate; Colleen MacQuarrie, professor of psychology at the University of Prince Edward Island and abortion access advocate; Autumn Reinhardt-Simpson, PhD candidate at the University of Alberta and abortion doula.
