“When it comes to protecting the right to choose, all I see are pros.”

Dascha Polanco, star of Orange is the New Black, has taken on a new role. She’s telling Kayleigh’s story, a young student who had an abortion due to personal reasons. It’s part of the new campaign Draw the Line from the Center for Reproductive Health.
