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.
