What Do Dry Cleaning, Amphibians, And Descendants Of John Adams Have To Do With Reproductive Rights?
This short film goes to very strange, weirdly hypnotic, and often amusing lengths to explain the complicated history of the fight for reproductive rights. Stick through the whole thing though. It’s totally fascinating.
