If you like to mix politics and pop culture, you may want to check out tonight’s episode of Boston Legal at 10 pm on ABC. It features a story line on a hospital that refuses to offer emergency contraception (EC) to a rape victim who consequently becomes pregnant. The Duvall Reproductive Rights Project of the ACLU of PA has organized a tool kit for individuals who want to host a viewing party of the episode. Thought it’s too late to organize something for tonight, we are hoping to obtain copies of the show to distribute for use in the future.
This tool kit is part of the project www.raisinghervoice.org, a website which promotes the importance of making emergency contraception available to sexual assault survivors. Kudos to the producers of Boston Legal, who included information about raisinghervoice.org on the show’s site.
