Episode #49: What can be lost in all the talk since the Supreme Court overturned the reproductive rights protected by Roe V. Wade is that the upheaval is not just about state legislatures, federal laws, or religious beliefs….it’s about people and their tender experiences. This episode features a collection of nuanced and highly personal stories about making reproductive decisions and how these choices impact mental health. Some of what you’ll hear may be difficult, but we urge you to listen and challenge yourself to hold the complexity, the diversity, and the common humanity in each tale. Our feature story is by writer, teacher and poet Patrice Vecchione. Joining us to listen, reflect on, and respond to these important reproductive health stories is Alissa Perrucci, PhD, the Counseling and Administrative Manager at the Women’s Options Center at San Francisco General Hospital.
