  • After Which Failed Pregnancy Should I Have Been Imprisoned? Rep. Lucy McBath on Reproductive Rights

    During a meeting of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Democratic Congressmember Lucy McBath of Georgia shared her personal story about accessing reproductive care after experiencing a stillbirth. In doing so, she pointed out how anti-abortion politicians and legislators fail to see the medical necessity of abortion in instances such as hers. “We can be the nation that rolls back the clock, that rolls back the rights of women, and that strips them of their very liberty. Or we can be the nation of choice — the nation where every woman can make her own choice,” says McBath.

  • Amy Littlefield on Oklahoma's New Total Abortion Ban & the Long Fight Ahead After Roe Falls

    After a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion revealed the intention to overturn Roe v. Wade, abortion has increasingly become a state issue, with conservative states criminalizing the procedure. Oklahoma approved a bill on Thursday that outlaws almost all abortions beginning at fertilization. The measure is modeled after a Texas ban that encourages private citizens to sue abortion providers and people who assist in abortions. The reproductive justice movement now faces not only these intense legal hurdles but also severe underfunding and an overreliance on billionaire-backed foundations that will not be sustainable for very long, warns Amy Littlefield, abortion access correspondent for The Nation.

KPFK has a new Interim General Manager
I’m happy to let you know that on Monday, May 16, Gregg Lewis will be at KPFK serving as the Interim General Manager. Gregg comes to Pacifica with a rich history in public media, marketing, and fundraising.  For over 25 years, he worked for KCRW and was the key strategist transforming the station into a world-renowned public-radio powerhouse, doubling their market share in less than a year and tripled the size of their sustaining monthly giving program.  His extensive background in management, development, and programming will greatly benefit KPFK and the Pacifica network.
