Fall of Roe Podcast: Abortion Hypocrisy and Christianity – A Conversation Between Valerie Tarico and Chris Charbonneau

I usually hate listening to my interviews, but even I enjoyed this one. Chris Charbonneau is a forty-year reproductive rights leader. Her handprints are on virtually every important innovation in the Planned Parenthood sphere for decades. That includes them spinning off their own drug company to control pricing, opening a lab when Catholic-controlled labs started refusing to process their STI, pregnancy and cancer screenings, making modern top-tier contraceptives (IUD’s and implants both affordable and available via 1 same-day appointment), creating a telemedicine service; facilitating school-based clinics . . . She’s a rock star and her podcasts are great. In this one we talk about the Religious Right, why they sneak their own daughters through the door for abortions while fighting against that option for the rest of us.


Valerie Tarico is a psychologist and writer in Seattle, Washington. She is the author of Trusting Doubt: A Former Evangelical Looks at Old Beliefs in a New Light and Deas and Other Imaginings.  Her articles about religion, reproductive health, and the role of women in society have been featured at sites including The Huffington Post, Salon, The Independent, Quillette, Free Inquiry, The Humanist, AlterNet, Raw Story, Grist, Jezebel, and the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies.  Subscribe at ValerieTarico.com.

    Has anyone in the pro-abortion movement ever brought up the financial responsibility that should be assumed by the rapist, boyfriend, relative, etc. that impregnated the female that now is being forced to carry that baby to term?

    Thank you for your work. I believe organize religion is the biggest con on the lives of people in history, and it must be addressed in this light. I think it’s long past time to tax organized religion, to help defray the costs of doing what’s necessary to educate the public to the dangers of trusting one leader in a group to “explain” life and the Bible to hurting and broken people. It’s an anachronism. Walk away from it.
