One in three women will have an abortion in her lifetime, yet in pop culture accurate portrayals of real people's stories are rare. In this special interview, two reproductive justice advocates listen and discuss two songs: Nick Cannon's 'Can I Live?' and Nicki Minaj's 'Autobiography', and ask: what messages are pop songs sending about reproductive health issues?

Featuring:

Alicia Walters, Movement Building Director at Forward Together
Samara Azam-Yu, Executive Director at ACCESS Women's Health Justice

This story is part of a joint reporting project on reproductive rights in pop culture that includes Bitch Media, Feministing, and Making Contact. This work is part of a Media Consortium collaboration made possible in part by a grant from the Voqal Fund.
