Netroots Nation
Jul 16, 2016 · 1 min read

Abortion is not a wedge issue. Abortion is health care, a constitutionally guaranteed right that for far too many people in far too many states is now a right in name only. In this Netroots Nation 2016 plenary session, reproductive justice and abortion rights activists spoke about their work, what’s at stake, and how to move from celebrating compromise as victory to winning.

Here are a few highlights from the session, as told by Netroots Nation attendees:
