Kelly Carlin and Katie Klabusich on Acronym TV discuss the war on women.
It's been over 40 years since the Supreme Court decided, in Roe v Wade, that women have a constitutional right to abortion. The legal argument was based around the concept that women had a right to privacy under the due-process clause of the 14th Amendment, and that right extended to their right to have an abortion. Perhaps no time in the 40 years since Roe v Wade have female reproductive rights been so under attack. From Texas to Alabama to Congressmen saying that women can't get pregnant when raped because their bodies have a way of shutting that sh*t down, men (usually white conservative men with ties to patriarchal religious institutions) are working their balls off trying to control women; specifically a woman's access to birth control and abortion.
Joining me on the program this week to discuss the War on Women, I'm proud to welcome Kelly Carlin and Katie Klabusich.
Kelly Carlin hosts a weekly podcast "Waking from the American Dream" and her recent one-woman show, A Carlin Home Companion, sold out around the country while generating rave reviews. She also holds masters in Jungian Depth Psychology, but, according to her bio, her desire to be on a stage and yell the word "f*ck" kept gnawing at her, and so she decided to follow the call of the stage once again.
