51 Years Since Roe V Wade, What Women Are Facing Without It

Trigger Warning: This episode discusses the loss of babies, so please take care when listening. 

Earlier this week was the 51 year anniversary of the landmark Roe V Wade decision handed by the US Supreme Court, protecting a persons right to an abortion. 

Fast forward to June 2022, the US Supreme Court overturned that ruling, and the abortion rights of women across the United States were extremely prohibited or gone altogether.

In this episode of The Quicky, we speak to an expert in women and girls' rights to see where the women of the US are now and if there is any chance of the decision being overturned soon.
