Pregnant at 16
This episode contains strong language and descriptions of an abortion.
With the end of Roe v. Wade, Louisiana has become one of the most difficult places in the United States to get an abortion. The barriers are expected to disproportionately affect Black women, the largest group to get abortions in the state.
Today, we speak to Tara Wicker and Lakeesha Harris, two women in Louisiana whose lives led them to very different positions in the fight over abortion access.
- The Supreme Court decision to reverse Roe, far from settling the matter, has kindled court and political battles that are likely to go on for years.
