How do you make a very serious topic (like a major women's health care crisis) memorable? A little satire and a whole lot of puppet.
Without further ado, I present to you "The Abortion Desert."
Some things you really have to see for yourself. But in case you didn't watch, here's the gist:
There's a nearly 1,200-mile-wide "desert" of abortion providers from Idaho to North and South Dakota.
There are only 10 cities in that entire 5 state area that offer any form of abortion access. Crazy right?
Well, if you think that's crazy, try watching a pink uterus named Eunice trek across the desert. I told you, you kind of have to watch it.
Eunice is hot. Eunice is tired. But Eunice is on a mission to show the hardships of crossing such a desert, especially if you're a poor woman or a woman of color.
These two groups are disproportionately affected when access to health care is limited, and research shows that funding restrictions force 1 in 4 women to carry unwanted pregnancies to term.
