Welcome to The A Files: A Secret History of Abortion! Here’s the first thing you need to know: Everything you’ve been taught about abortion is wrong. And the real truth is fascinating, frustrating, and key for every one of us to understand in 2024 and beyond. In this series, Renee Bracey Sherman and Regina Mahone—reproductive justice experts and friends—unpack the hidden history of this very common practice, from ancient Greek methods to the anti-Black roots of abortion bans in the U.S. Plus, some of the smartest people we know stop by to drop wisdom, and Renee and Regina start a little book club for all of us. Enjoy, and remember: As Renee says, Everyone loves someone who’s had an abortion.
About There Are Other Books
While we love Margaret Atwood's Classic The Handmaid's Tale, we are excited to tell you that it is not the only novel with abortion in it! In each episode we talk about a novel that we love and includes abortion, along with conversations about race, class, policing, and gender identity.
