Read more about this issue, take action below, and help move the needle.*** *** [Indigo Cox] (https://www.indigocox.com/about-the-author/) read many excellent academic books on women's reproductive health. But as a physician herself, and one who performs abortions, she wanted a book that told a story from both sides. She decided to hear those stories, she would have to write them herself. "[Native Girl Rites] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/0998953733/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1505002430&sr=8-2&keywords=Native+Girl+Rites)" (Metamorphosis/ 2017) follows Mari Gray, a young woman of color who is training to provide abortions in a small town, and Amy, who finds herself involved in an extremist group intent on ending them. The book shows that the men and women embroiled in the debate over abortion are all people with stories to share, and that talking about the issue is always better than resorting to violence. ***Take action below to record a personal video message about this issue.
