Roe vs Wade - Katie Pryal on why abortion is a Higher-Ed Issue.
Show Notes

There is no doubt that there are many immediate consequences for women in the US when it comes to the overturn of Roe vs Wade. It almost doesn't bare thinking. But we all should, and Katie Rose Guest Pryal caught our attention with an article in The Chronicle called: "Abortion is a Higher-Ed Issue " (link below).

Katie is an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of North Carolina School of Law, an author and a public speaker. One of the topics she speaks and writes about is mental health and aspects of mental disability. In her article, she highlighted some of the many mental health consequences the Dobbs decision could have on mental health. It led to a broad conversation that really enlighted us on negative aspects of reproductive health for women generally, legal consequences for all just by talking about a potential abortion and the culture of mistrust the decision can lead to.

The consequences are many and dire, and we urge you all to pay attention to the many things that are going on and support the fight for reproductive rights generally, but also listen to Katie's advice on what to do at the end of the episode.

This is as always a topic we will follow closely.
