Six experiences of unwanted pregnancy

Program Title:
Six experiences of unwanted pregnancy
PRA Archive #: 

This program was originally produced in October 1971 for "Unlearning to not speak" by Lois Hansen of the KPFA Women. It begins with a short play by Myrna Lamb, "What have you done for me lately?" about a man's pregnancy, induced by a female doctor who had been forced to bear that man's child 19 years earlier because she couldn't get an abortion. The program continues with Hansen moderating a panel discussion with three Bay Area women, "Shirley," "Sheila" and "Judy," telling of their experiences of unwanted pregnancy.

The play, which can be heard in its entirety in BC0442, is not featured on this recording. This recording begins with a short description of the play followed by the roundtable discussion.
