Reproductive Justice

When you move from defending a woman’s right to choose to pursuingĀ  reproductive justice, there are suddenly a lot more issues in play than abortion: economic inequality, the right to healthcare, wages for uncompensated labor. Cat Brooks talks to the two women who literally wrote the book. Plus: a look at why some environmental justice groups are opposing the climate package that is rocketing toward a vote in the state Capitol tonight.

Guests:

  • 7:20 Ratha Lai, community organizer for Asian Pacific Environmental Network based in Richmond, CA.
  • 7:34: Loretta Ross and Rickie Solinger, authors of Reproductive Justice: An Introduction
