Katie interviews April Greene, co-founder of the Georgia-based Magnolia Fund. This non-profit helps low-income women afford abortions, whether through monetary support like subsidized procedures, or practical support like transportation, lodging, or emotional comfort. They discuss the obstacles many women face to getting abortion care, the total sham of so-called "Crisis Pregnancy Centers," the anti-choice movement's use of Targeted Regulation of Abortion Provider (aka TRAP) laws to deter access to abortion, striving to be more intersectional feminists, and how the Hyde Amendment unfairly blocks low-income women and women of color from seeking reproductive freedom.
