Stripped of Choice, Roe v. Wade, featuring Erin Kreszl

Fresh Takes - Episode 33

TRIGGER WARNING: mentions of miscarriage, sexual assault, abortion, etc.  

On today’s episode of FRESH Takes On The Future Of Work, host Jess Podgajny is joined by her friend Erin Kreszl. Erin is an MBA, non-profit founder, former investment consultant, and mother to two young girls. Reflecting on the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Jess and Erin share their thoughts on abortion access and its effects on women, their careers, and their lives.

Erin shares her story of choosing to carry out a difficult pregnancy, despite learning that her child would have challenging physical and developmental needs. Now, Erin is grateful for her daughter as well as her choice to have her, especially because she was in the right financial position to be her mom. In a country with inadequate paid family leave and little professional security for women, Erin and Jess highlight the importance of bodily autonomy and urge employers to protect the reproductive rights of their female employees.
