CHOICE/LESS – Cherisse Scott: So Why Am I Here?

Jenn Stanley

Fourteen years ago, Cherisse Scott was a singer finishing a national tour. The career she’d worked so hard for all her life was about to blossom. Then an unplanned pregnancy and a trip to what she thought was an abortion clinic changed all of that.

Today, she’s a nationally recognized reproductive justice activist. She’s taken on anti-choice billboards and works with faith groups to bring comprehensive sex education to Tennessee schools in place of the currently mandated abstinence-focused programs. Listen to her story on this episode of CHOICE/LESS.
