BitchTapes: Roe v. Wade

On January 22, America will celebrate the 45 anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that granted legal access to safe abortions. While people with wombs are supposed to be able to make reproductive choices without federal and state-level intervention, Roe v. Wade is more under attack than ever before. Reproductive rights advocates are knee-deep in the fight to keep abortion safe and legal on this 45 anniversary, we are offering a playlist that celebrates the ruling.

This BitchTapes includes songs about abortion as well as haunting songs about what can happen to those who don’t have access to the procedure.
