Khiara Bridges is a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law where she studies the intersection of race, class, and reproductive rights and justice. In this episode, Bridges joins Erica Chidi to explain the current state of reproductive laws in America, the impact of Roe v. Wade, and why it could be overturned by the Supreme Court. She talks about what this decision could mean for our constitutional rights, who it disproportionately impacts, and what else we lose if we lose the ability to protect people from forced pregnancies. As Bridges explains, this is about much more than abortion access. (To help raise awareness and support the ACLU Foundation’s Reproductive Freedom Project, we launched a new limited-edition candle—you can learn more about it and find more reproductive justice resources here.)
