As Americans head to the ballot box, the newest episode of Crossing the Line, an immersive documentary-style podcast and campaign produced by Population Media Center, humanizes the reproductive access debate that is playing out this election cycle. Through interviews about when pregnancy is a matter of life or death, the latest episode of the podcast tells the story of the potentially fatal impact of abortion bans.
This episode is especially relevant given new data released this week that shows the number of legal abortions is falling nationwide; abortion care is not just an important part of reproductive healthcare but a necessary component of holistic healthcare decisions.
“The reproductive freedom of women in America will be determined by this election,” said Lisa Caruso, Population Media Center’s Head of U.S. Content and creator of Crossing the Line. “Listen along to learn more about reproductive freedom and the journeys women and non-binary people take to access healthcare in Crossing the Line.”
Crossing the Line recently won four Platinum MarCom Awards for Podcast, Podcast Episode, Podcast Series, and Social Ad Campaign. The podcast was also featured in Apple Podcasts’ “New & Noteworthy” section and awarded a free promotional spot by Amazon. Stream the latest episode across all podcast platforms.
