  • Motherhood and the Pro-Choice Movement

    July 24, 2013

    In Sarah Erdreich’s recent Huffington Post blog, ‘Pro- Choice Mother’ is Not an Oxymoron, Erdreich openly opposes SarahErdreichphotothe commonly agreed upon belief that being pro-choice and a mother are incompatible.

    Erdreich declares that she was pro- choice before becoming a mother, and remains pro-choice after her daughter was born. Erdreich states that reproductive choice and deciding when to become a parent don’t necessarily go hand in hand with abortion however, in her opinion, if a woman feels that it’s the right time for her to become a parent, she should; if she feels that it’s not the right time, then she should have her reproductive rights of choosing another option (such as contraception, adoption and abortion).

    “I absolutely cannot imagine ever telling another woman what she should and shouldn’t be allowed to do with her body, what choices she should and shouldn’t be allowed to make. And I cannot comprehend the arrogance of anyone that would try to do so.”

    Erdreich goes on to explain her belief in reproductive rights as defining it as the right to affordable birth control so that pregnancy can be delayed until the mother is ready.

  • 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.

    Sarah Erdreich Book Launch
    Thursday, March 21st @ 7:30pm

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.
