Infertility and disability intersect in a number of ways – folks with disabilities may struggle with conceiving as a result of their condition and access to various interventions may be a challenge. For this episode, Nichole looks at the 1991 film The Unborn to explore some of those connections and discuss why we need more expansive stories dealing with all matters of reproductive health.
