Power Over Life & Death

This podcast is a reading of excerpts from the book, The Sacrament of Abortion, by Ginette Paris. The author is a pagan and has an analysis of abortion that, whether or not you agree with it, will make you think about who gets to decide the most fundamental issue of living on this planet--who will live, who will die.

Lysistrata Scene Two--RUMBLE!

At Lysistrata's command, armed women have taken over the Acropolis, while the Chorus of Old Women faces off with the Chorus of Old Men, hurling sexist and suggestive invective at each other. Is there going to be a rumble on the road to peace? The stalwart representatives of law and order arrive to put down the insurgency and to put women back in their proper place, but Lysistrata and her comrades stand their ground.
