I am a former Planned Parenthood counselor and clinic assistant, first in Michigan and then in Maryland. Both experiences enriched my understanding of reproductive rights and influenced my future school and career paths. I earned my M.A. in Sociology at American University, focusing on gender and family. My interests span a wide range, but much of what moves me to speak out involves abortion and sexuality, especially with a media twist. My graduate thesis was on the regulation of sexual content in film and television.
in addition to worrying about an unplanned pregnancy and whether I’ll
be able to get an abortion, now I have to worry about under
planning pregnancy? Female fertility has become a
schizophrenic mine field.
