"Safe, Legal, and Good"? 47 Years After Roe v. Wade

Episode Notes

In today's episode--which is a crossover from Vernacular Podcast--we're talking about abortion--more specifically, how we're moving away from the language of "safe, legal, and rare" to an ideation of abortion as an unqualified good. This is a short conversation, but you may be interested in our longer discussion of this topic that we recorded originally in 2016. See our episode from January 22 of last year (2019) called From the Archives: 46 Years After Roe: https://pod.link/990809952/ep/1000428214082
