Many women around the country can take their health care for granted. If you discover a medical problem, make a call, see your doctor and get things fixed, problem solved. But it's not so easy in Georgia, especially when it comes to reproductive health care. In the third and final episode of our report on women's health care, you'll meet someone who is trying to ensure women have access to comprehensive, quality reproductive health care. Janelle Yamarick of Feminist Women's Health Center has been fighting on the front lines of abortion rights in Georgia since 1977. But it isn't just about abortion. Janelle's work extends to women from cultures who traditionally shy away from sex education and sexual health, as well as people from the gay and trans community who have trouble finding health care services. Tune in to learn about the outstanding work Feminist Women's Health Center is doing in Atlanta, quietly, under the radar, with great success.

Is there a "War On Women" in America? Is a woman's right to choose under attack? Is Roe V Wade at risk of becoming a relic of history? In Georgia, the legislature passed a bill, the "Fetal Pain Bill", that bans abortions after 20 weeks, with few exceptions. Women's health care isn't just an issue of personal choice, it's an economic issue. In this three part film, we look at the status of women's health care in Georgia. In part one, you will meet Monica Simpson of SisterSong, an Atlanta based organization that educates women of color on issues of reproduction, sexual health and human rights. Monica shows us that when a woman can control her reproduction, she can then take control of her education choices, her economic future, and her families stability. This film runs 34 minutes.
