Chapter News Archive

 

Middlesex County NOW has worked with RU Choice (a Rutgers campus organization) to document reproductive life before Roe v. Wade so younger women today can learn what it was like in that era.  Part of this project is to videotape women describing their experiences with birth control and abortion before 1973. The NEVER GO BACK project in its currently evolving form can be seen here.  If you would like to contribute your experiences, send us e-mail. Video taping can be done anonymously, or experiences can be related in written form.  The most recent video was added on March 24, 2013.
