The podcast where we do a little ranting, raving, and wand waving! We’ll be examining witchcraft and spirituality from a modern, fat, feminist perspective; with a cauldron full of sass.

Episode 63 - Witches, Midwives, and… abortionists?

January 9, 2020

Hello friends and thank you so much for tuning in to episode 63 of the podcast. Today’s episode is kind of an extension from an episode I put out last year called Witches, Midwives and Doulas all about the role of midwives, herbalists, and medicine women in the history of witchcraft and women’s rights. Today we’re focusing on another aspect of that role – the abortionist.

I’m going to talk a little about attitudes about abortion and conception and how that affected women and witches, and I’ve got some practical information about sketchy herbs and magic rocks and deities you can use in magic for reproductive freedom!
