I loved Eleanor Bader’s article Beginning with the Children! It does a great job of describing the work of my organization, Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility. More importantly, it draws a vivid picture of what can happen when we give kids a safe place where they can tell their stories and learn skills to help them stand up for themselves and others. Every child should have this chance!

Merle Hoffman's Choices: A Post-Roe Abortion Rights Manifesto

“Merle Hoffman has always known that in a democracy, we each have decision-making power over the fate of our own bodies. She is a national hero for us all.” —Gloria Steinem

In the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe V. Wade and a country divided, Merle Hoffman, a pioneer in the pro-choice movement and women’s healthcare, offers an unapologetic and authoritative take on abortion calling it “the front line and the bottom line of women’s freedom and liberty.” 

Merle Hoffman has been at the forefront of the reproductive freedom movement since the 1970s. Three years before the Supreme Court legalized abortion through Roe v. Wade, she helped to establish one of the United States’ first abortion centers in Flushing, Queens, and later went on to found Choices, one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive women’s medical facilities. For the last five decades, Hoffman has been a steadfast warrior and fierce advocate for every woman’s right to choose when and whether or not to be a mother.
