A Message from The Moth on Roe v. Wade

by The Moth

Hello Moth Community, 

Although we knew it was coming, we were deeply shaken when we heard the news about the  Supreme Court’s decision to reverse Roe V. Wade. We’ve been preparing for this decision to happen for weeks. In early June, we produced a special episode of The Moth Podcast and created a playlist of stories about the importance of bodily autonomy. None of that changes the fact that after the ruling was made public, we found ourselves at a loss for words. 

As we process this news, we know that hope is an essential resource right now.  Having a place to tell your story, speak your truth and be heard could not be more important. Personal stories showcase the complexity of the human experience, champion empathy and invite conversation. Stories have the power to move hearts and minds, but we know that stories without action are not enough. 

Below you’ll find a list of resources to assist you, or anyone you know, in getting access to services to help you make informed choices about your bodies and healthcare. 

We encourage you to stand up, make your voice be heard and to do everything you can to help those in need. 

With hope,

The Moth
