No Such Right: The End of Roe in Appalachia:
with Her Synopsis

No Such Right” is a snapshot of a region in crisis. In the aftermath of the stunning Dobbs v. Jackson decision, doctors, lawyers, activists, and young people across Appalachia had to come to terms with what the future of their region and their rights would be. “No Such Right” is our search for answers, highlighting the voices of those impacted by Dobbs and their efforts to reckon with and remedy these issues. This story is a single piece of a much larger national narrative, but it is a story that few others are in a place to tell.
