We are vacillating between resignation and rage in the wake of the Roe v. Wade decision. We recorded this episode on June 28. This is a heavy and raw conversation. You will hear us dive into uncomfortable terrain and uncover the nuances in our own belief systems.
This is a harrowing time. Don’t forget to reach out and lean on your support networks, find healthy outlets for your emotions, and be an advocate and ally for those most experiencing the gravity of these decisions. Resources and more reading linked below.
In this show we're talking about:
- Support networks: finding outlets for rage, reclaiming agency, and what to do when the people you love don’t share your values.
- Embracing nuance in a culture of extremism.
- Who actually experiences the lived burden of this decision? (Not men)
- The immense undertaking of being a parent.
- Further consequences of this decision: people who are already under-resourced will be disproportionately affected.
Thank you for listening to the show. It is such an honor and joy to have these conversations with you. They are necessary and needed and we are here to do the work.
Xo, Sage & Erica
