Erbe' Response to Negative Article

June 09, 2014 Host Bonnie Erbe' on set


Here's my retort to what is on its face a partisan distortion (to put it diplomatically) of my views. One Mr. David Neiwert, writing for the Southern Poverty Law Center, produced an article on June 7, 2014, retweeted and posted by Salon.com. It began: "Bonnie Erbe, the longtime host of the Public Broadcasting Service’s “To The Contrary” program, has long been a proponent of dubious claims that immigration depletes natural resources and worsens global warming, as well as an apologist for the anti-immigrant Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). So it was not really a surprise when CIS awarded Erbe its annual journalism prize this year for her “reporting on immigration’s effects on health care, poverty, and natural resources, as well as on birth tourism.”

Why are Smart Women Waiting Until the Onset of Menopause to Try to Have Kids?

May 27, 2014

By Miriam Zoll

 In a recent PBS “To the Contrary”show about the infertility industry, host Bonnie Erbe` asked: Why did Miriam Zoll wait until age 40 to try to become a mother?

Here is Zoll’s response.

Over the last four decades, we emancipated daughters of America have been taught that we have the power to control our destinies. Programs like the Ms. Foundation for Women’s original “Take Our Daughters To Work Day,” which I helped co-produce, reinforced the notion that we could grow up to be just about anything­­––from astronauts to doctors, to lawyers or plumbers. With abortion and contraceptives legally accessible, we believed from an early age that we could control our reproduction, too. If the Pill could help us prevent unwanted pregnancy, surely we could just as easily manifest a wanted pregnancy whenever we were ready. If we encountered obstacles, well, there was always reproductive medicine like in-vitro fertilization (I.V.F.) to save the day.
