Bridging Blocks: A Rift Over Reproductive Rights


The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled there is no constitutional right to abortion. The overturning of Roe v Wade, which was considered by many to have been settled law, has sparked tense debates and protests across the country.   


But with the barrage of opinions and hot takes, are we truly listening to one another, or simply tuning out disagreements? Can civil dialogue be the start to easing the rift over reproductive rights?  


WHYY and the FUMO Family Library invite you to participate in a community conversation where we’ll unpack this socio-political flashpoint and examine the arguments on both sides.
