There are some issues so entrenched that it can feel like there is nothing new to learn, but at WPR we believe there is always more to the story.
Our reporters have spent months looking into abortion in Wisconsin, and across the nation, from when the 1849 law was passed up through the Roe v. Wade decision. Some of what we learned surprised us.
In about 30 minutes, WPR’s latest audio documentary – “How We Got Here: Abortion in Wisconsin since 1849” – offers more than 150 years of history and context to give you new perspectives on the issue today. We promise that you will hear something about this issue that you haven’t heard before.
