Contraception at the Tea Party: The Politics of Women's Health with Linda Gordon

10/5/2012; 59 minutes

The political fight that has broken out in the US about contraception is both surprising and at the same time traditionally American. Linda Gordon, Professor at New York University, puts today's reproduction control controversies -- foreign aid for family planning, the abortion debates, teenage pregnancy and childbearing, stem-cell research --into historical perspective and argues that reproduction control has always been central to women's status.
