Merle Hoffman – Abortion & Women’s Reproductive Rights

Audio here!

This Saturday on ETFF, Sunsara Taylor will be speaking with Merle Hoffman about her new memoir, “The Life and Times of the Woman Who Brought Abortion from the Back Alley to the Boardroom.”

In 1971 – two years before the Roe V. Wade decision which legalized abortion nationally – Merle Hoffman founded Choices, and abortion clinic in NY. As a medical provider, she pioneered Patient Power, encouraging women to participate in their own health care decisions. Whether addressing the murder of abortion providers like Dr. George Tiller, or challenging women to understand and explore their own power over their bodies and the language used to wield such power, Merle Hoffman has been on the front lines of the feminist movement – a fierce warrior in the battle for choice.

  1. I am not Iranian but have been following the events in Iran as they have broader meaning globally with people fighting for the very same things that are under fire the world over.Thank you for this beautiful article, I had no exposure to this, the songs, the music, the powerful emotions that are conveyed through them, and it was a wonderful, timely read that can resonate with anyone from any culture, anywhere.
