Renee Bracey Sherman is a never-ending resource of information when it comes to the current political fight for abortion rights in the country. On this week’s episode of Women’s Health’s podcast, “Uninterrupted,” she shares her own abortion story, and the reason why she will always be open and honest about it.

Who Should Speak Up About Abortion Access?
