Policing The Womb (with Dr. Michele Bratcher Goodwin)

Episode 236: Rumble with Michael Moore


On today’s episode of Rumble, I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Michele Bratcher Goodwin — award-winning author, law professor, Executive Committee Member of the ACLU, and tireless advocate and activist for reproductive justice. 

We talked about the fate of Roe v. Wade, the relentless attacks from the GOP on our voting rights, and, most importantly, her brilliant proposal for a Reproductive Justice New Deal from her extraordinary book “Policing The Womb: Invisible Women and the Criminalization of Motherhood.” 

I promise you, if you listen, you will be as inspired as I was to start acting now, right now, to protect our rights because as Dr. Goodwin so wisely points out, there’s always work to be done.
