In this week's episode, Jess covers the history of access to abortion. Referred to as "the procedure" to protect those seeking one, abortions are a topic with strong opinions on every side. We're here to provide the background of how various cultures throughout history felt about the practice, the changing story of the American narrative, and we'll throw in some mind-blowing facts about the Puritans.
