  • Sarah Erdreich’s trip to a Crisis Pregnancy Clinic

    July 16, 2013

    The Huffington Post featured an article today by pro-choice activist and author of Generation Roe, Sarah Erdreich, in which she recounts her recent trip to a Crisis Pregnancy Clinic (CPC). CPCs are infamous for their latent anti-choice agendas and Erdreich thought it was important for her to experience this side of the movement first-hand. What she learned was predictable but nevertheless alarming.

    Erdreich_GenerationRoe_72dpiShe met with one of the clinic’s (un-licensed) counselors under the pretense of wanting to discuss her pregnancy. Erdreich describes the meeting as not unpleasant, though devoid of any helpful information. The pamphlets she was given, however, were full of information –medically inaccurate information and biased scare tactics. For example, ”One pamphlet claimed that abortion makes women infertile, despite the fact that there is no proven relationship between abortion and subsequent infertility.”

    Erdreich ends her article by eloquently stating, “That false ‘counselors’ are comfortable lying to women looking for help is evidence of how badly CPCs abuse the trust of those it purports to care about.

  • Sarah Erdreich in L.A.

    March 21, 2013

    Sarah Erdreich will be in L.A. at Book Soup Thursday, March 21 at 7:00pm to discuss her new book, Generation Roe.

    It is about time, forty years after Roe v. Wade, to finally demystify abortion. One-third of all American women will have an abortion by the time they are 45, and most of those women are already mothers. Yet, the topic remains taboo. Even amidst MTV’s 16 & Pregnant, depictions of or even discussion about abortion remains almost nonexistent. In Generation Roe, Sarah Erdreich gives us a new way of thinking about abortion–one based in the reality of women’s lives.

Now, in Generation Roe, Erdreich tells the true stories of those whose lives are most changed by this issue, and outlines the outrageous legal battlegrounds that have popped up across the country, all with frankness and candor.

  • Sarah Erdreich at Bluestockings

    March 11, 2013

    Sarah Erdreich will be at Bluestockings on Monday, March 11th to read, discuss, and sign her new book Generation Roe: Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice MovementErdreich_GenerationRoe_72dpi

    Inextricably connected to issues of autonomy, privacy, and sexuality, the abortion debate remains home base for the culture wars in America. Yet, there is more common ground than meets the eye in favor of choice. Generation Roe delves into phenomena such as “abortion-recovery counseling,” “crisis pregnancy centers,” and the infamous anti-choice “black children are an endangered species” billboards. It tells the stories of those who risk their lives to pursue careers in this stigmatized field. And it outlines the outrageous legislative battles that are being waged against abortion rights all over the country. With an inspiring spirit and a forward-looking approach, Erdreich holds abortion up, unabashedly, as a moral and fundamental human right.

    Join Sarah Erdreich, women’s health advocate and writer, to discuss her new book.

  • Sarah Edreich in New York

    March 12, 2012

    Sarah Edreich will be in New York at the Social Medicine Rounds at Montefiore Medical Center on Tuesday, March 12 at 4:30,to discuss her new book, Generation Roe.

    Generation Roe: Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice Movement exposes the abortion issue. a home base for the culture wars in America, as inextricably tangled in autonomy, privacy, and sexuality. Yet, there is more common ground than meets the eye, when so many Americans, in all honesty, have made that choice, and many more want to have that choice. Erdreich holds the antidote to the usual debates, and redirects the dialogue to face reality, speak honestly, and hold abortion up, unabashedly, as a moral and fundamental human right.

    Sarah Edreich has been identified as a leading pro-choice activist by Newsweek, and her incisive writings on abortion rights have been noted by JezebelFeministing, and the National Partnership for Women and Families.
