January 22, 2022 was the 49th anniversary of Roe v Wade, the landmark US Supreme Court case that legalized abortion across the nation. Today on the podcast, we reflect on the human rights issue through music:

  • Ishmael Butler and Larry Mizell, Jr. discuss the Digable Planets song, "La Femme Fétal," which was about the decision to terminate a pregnancy.  
  • KEXP’s Albina Cabrera shares music about abortion from Latin America and explains how abortion laws are playing out there.
  • Emily Nokes of the Seattle band Tacocat talks about taking abortion pills in front of the US Supreme Court as part of the Shout Your Abortion campaign.
