Flashback to the Good Old Days of Serving Up Abortions, IVF Treatments, and Pregnancy Stories at the Ballgame

Let’s serve up reproductive rights at the ballgame and discuss the levels of “pro-life” and “freedom” within the Texas Legislature.

The beginning of this podcast is recorded after the overturning of Roe v. Wade with the ruling of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health.

The second part of this podcast is about a conversation I had with an IVF doctor at the ballgame about reproductive rights.

Hosted by Former Texas State Representative Gina Calanni

Oh How the Tides Have Changed

This episode is to highlight the many “rights” women fought for and won- less than 50 years ago.  Yet, with the overturning of Roe v. Wade, we need to be on high alert.  All rights are at risk and we cannot put our heads in the sand.

It is imperative to take action now. To be loud. To voice your concern.  

If we do not have autonomy over our own body, then what do we have?
