Before Roe v. Wade: 5 stories of how the abortion ruling changed the U.S.


We spoke to people in all aspects of the abortion rights battle about life before Roe v. Wade, and what it could look like again.

These are memories from women who received illegal abortions, those who campaigned against abortion rights, and those who worked as health care providers before and after 1973. Below are their stories, in their own words.

The mournful cooing of the Mourning Dove is one of our most familiar bird sounds. From southern Canada to central Mexico, this is one of our most common birds, often abundant in open country and along roadsides. European settlement of the continent, with its opening of the forest, probably helped this species to increase. It also helps itself, by breeding prolifically: in warm climates, Mourning Doves may raise up to six broods per year, more than any other native bird.

One of the loudest and most colorful birds of eastern back yards and woodlots, the Blue Jay is unmistakable. Intelligent and adaptable, it may feed on almost anything, and it is quick to take advantage of bird feeders. Besides their raucous jay! jay! calls, Blue Jays make a variety of musical sounds, and they can do a remarkable imitation of the scream of a Red-shouldered Hawk. Not always conspicuous, they slip furtively through the trees when tending their own nest or going to rob the nest of another bird.

Land Day (March 30, 1976) trish salah – sacrificezone


The government said “Security and settlement” and called curfew

for Sakhnin, Arraba, Deir Henna, Tamra, Tu’ran, Kabul

sent in 4000 police and the IDF…

Ysrael Koenig advised they “cement long term Jewish national interests” and “examine the possibility of diluting existing Arab population concentrations.”

Without land,

and your fear, you are not you

robbed of your face, spirit

and in no place to lie down, how

to turn, rise,

fly upon the moment?

We all want to be light

Know light’s plummet

Lose ground.

This is to come to land.

If a child is a land you may not own,

If this child is called Impossible morning

If our histories make us lie,

If down

If, in home, blood soaked


Too many trampled and trampling feet

too many laws bulldozers soldiers laws bulldozers

crowd where your house,

your olive, fig or lemon trees should grow.

How might you live, if you do not take back the land?

You may not own, but for land, they mass.

It is a word stolen.

Fatal Vision: Joel Coen’s ‘Macbeth’

“I am in this earthly world, where to do harm / Is often laudable, to do good / Sometime accounted dangerous folly.” So says Lady Macduff in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Moments later, she and her entire family—innocents all — are slaughtered. The triumph of Joel Coen’s film adaptation is that it creates a visual and psychological universe of its own.
