MSW Media and Abortion Access Front (AAF) Drop Limited Series Training Podcast, Aug. 26 at 6 p.m. EST
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since reading Judge Samuel Alito’s mocking and misogynistic opinion that overturned Roe v. Wade, millions of people started freaking out asking, “WHAT ARE WE DOING?!” (video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q92LspTw1dQ)
Before access to abortion (AAF) has answered that question with a campaign called OPERATION SAVE ABORTION (OpSave) – because walking and raging is important, but it’s not enough.
Operation Save Abortion was launched as a day-long event livestreamed from New York, which brought together funders, providers, legislative and policy experts and direct action conservatives for a full day of interactive conversations that spilled over into activist parties nationwide. The result was that 10,000 participants watched and learned how to get involved, and chose to do so in a way that works for them.
Now this live streaming event is available as “Feminist Buzzkills Live!» five-part podcast series, produced by Abortion Access Front and the MSW Media Network. The series drops August 26 at 6 p.m. EST.
“I am honored and thrilled to help produce and amplify the OpSave podcast series. As a military veteran and activist of choice, this is one of the most important topics of a generation,” says Dr. Allison Gill, Founder and CEO of MSW Media “The OpSave message aligns with the mission of MSW Media – a women-led company to support independent media voices on issues of justice and democracy.”
Dr. Gill added: “I am personally involved in lobbying the Pentagon to allow abortion access at military treatment centers and allow leave for reproductive health care travel. I also work with activists to pressure Congress to pass legislation that will protect and expand access to abortion care.
Instead of being limited to a single day of activism, people can now invite their friends, download the toolkits, listen and participate in Operation Save Abortion as an episode whenever it suits them best.
It’s like a book club, but for podcasts, with fun activities provided!
Lizz Winstead, co-creator of “Daily Show” and founder of Abortion Access Front, says people are looking for ways to fight back. “The number one complaint we’ve heard from people as this reproductive crisis unfolds is, ‘I don’t know what to do!’ Operation Save Abortion provides a platform to showcase a variety of organizations in the movement so new activists can learn about them, connect with them, and develop an action plan to dive in and help.
The Operation Save Abortion capsule series is not the capsule you listen to for cleaning out your closet. Participants will listen, learn and use a toolkit to find out how many ways they can fight for this movement – whether by directly supporting independent clinics or volunteering for abortion funds, stepping into the street and creating good trouble, or directly lobbying legislators to influence legislation. They will also discover unique and life-saving opportunities such as abortion storytelling and other ways to reduce stigma. And more!
OPERATION SAFEGUARD ABORTION: The Pod Series isn’t a march, it’s your marching orders! The podcast series will harness the energy of amazing people across America who can’t wait to show up for service, but just haven’t figured out where they stand.

ABOUT ACCESS TO ABORTION
Founded in 2015 by comedian and Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead, Abortion Access Front (Abortion AF) is a non-profit organization made up of comedians, writers and producers. They use humor to de-stigmatize abortion and expose extremist forces working to destroy access to reproductive rights and abortion in all 50 states.
Abortion AF’s provocative and hilarious multimedia content educates people about the pervasive and discriminatory abortion laws that disproportionately impact underrepresented people, especially in BIPOC communities, while also working on the ground, by building support and awareness for independent abortion providers – the community clinics that bear the brunt of anti-abortion legislation and harassment, and provide the majority of abortion care in the country.
