In brief: Catching up on old clips — Stephanie Miller Show June 2013 edition!

Overview:

I realized I had some clips hanging around from before I started the Katie Speak Live and podcast feeds, so I’m cleaning house! It turns out, though, that these may be from a year and a half ago, but they’re more than just relevant. According to Molly Redden at Mother Jones"The War on Reproductive Rights Will Get a Lot Uglier Next Year” — and pretty much every body else (myself included), 2015 is gonna be an anti-choice legislation bonanza. Which means Hal and I might as well have been talking about this yesterday.

Please make allowances for how early this is in my media career; I’m sure there is an ableist and/or trans-exclusionary comment or phrase in here somewhere. I was and am learning. Thanks for the benefit of the doubt as I’ve evolved as fast as I can, identifying and breaking down my privilege as best I can. That my friends, followers, readers and listeners have been so kind and patient — as well as informative and honest — has allowed me to become a better reproductive justice advocate and ally.

And with that note, please enjoy the flashbacks to one of my spots on The Stephanie Miller Show with my friend Hal Sparks filling in as host!

The easy download/stream and additional text description/info is available at the Katie Speak Live! tab on my website.

My latest piece for Truthout -- "The Uncertainty of Access: Reproductive Health in the Rio Grande Valley" -- features a number of amazing voices. Other writers, organizers and hosts are picking up on their inspiring work!

Rubén Garza of the Texas Freedom Network was on Netroots Radio's After Show this morning chatting with Justice Putnam about reproductive justice, public education, registering a record number of new voters in the Valley and more. I wanted to make sure you didn't miss it, so here's their conversation in full.

You can also get the audio version of my article in its entirety here: audio accompaniment to "The Uncertainty of Access: Reproductive Health in the Rio Grande Valley" (easy stream, download and direct link to podcast feed).

In brief: because not everyone has TONS of reading time, huzzah!

My new piece at Truthout is long. Super extra long. When you hear the words of the activists from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas you'll know why I just couldn't cut any of what they had to say. The famously awful, omnibus anti-choice law HB2 is hitting the Valley the hardest -- and the reproductive justice community there is doing inspiring, tireless work without showing signs of letting up or admitting defeat. Quite the opposite, actually.

This is the audio companion to my, well, my love letter to the people who inspire me every day. When I can't get up, don't know how I'm going to keep working, or feel overwhelmed, I look to the people in this piece. They're heroes, all of them, and they're fighting for you.

Please take the time to thank Truthout by sharing the article directly from their website: "The Uncertainty of Access: Reproductive Health in the Rio Grande Valley." They are a nonprofit outlet without the corporate sponsorship you see on so many sites and they’ve given me a space to talk about important issues that are so often ignored. Thank you!

In brief: Back on with Justice to talk Texas, what’s next, RGV activist awesomeness and why you should care about HB2 no matter where you live! Oh, and VOTE.

Overview

Always happy to be on with Justice! We did the algebra of HB2, shared mutual admiration for the amazing work being done by Texas activists — including those who assist with transportation to clinics (Fund Texas Choice) and those working to end stigma. They’re an inspiring level of inexhaustible and undaunted by the scope of the work to be done.

I referenced Katha Pollitt’s new book "Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights” which discusses, in part, that our healthcare has been unnecessarily manhandled by the patriarchy. Women used to hand down knowledge to each other and share within the community; only recently is someone eternally up in your business as a barrier to things like birth control and managing miscarriages.

I recommended Jessica Mason Pieklo's piece at RH Reality Check on which cases to watch this Supreme Court season. Read and become smarter: "Six Supreme Court Cases Equality Advocates Should Watch This Term"

Justice, of course, did his call for voter turn-out next month. We’re both fans of voting with friends and neighbors — TAKE PEOPLE WITH YOU to make sure they can get there, don’t forget and y’all aren’t bored waiting in possible lines. The same day we got the good news about HB2, we got the bad news about the Texas voter ID law. These are not unrelated; there is a systemic, long-term plan for control being executed here. As my friend Lee Camp says, “Evil people have plans.” We’re basically being beaten by office supplies. So vote next month, even if it’s just to stick to the jerkbags.

In brief: My regular spot with Katie Vitale! We hate on the Fifth Circuit and swing the hypocrisy hammer at the GOP’s “family values."

Overview:

It is always a pleasure to be on with Katie Vitale to talk Texas and how what’s happening in my favorite state affects the entire country! We chatted the Fifth Circuit decision that closed the most recent 13 clinics (this was a few hours before SCOTUS stepped in, allowing the clinics to reopen pending a December hearing at the Appeals Court) and the badass activism happening in the Rio Grande Valley.

We also brought down the hypocrisy hammer on Greg Abbott and the broader GOP who claim they impose restrictions on access to reproductive health, cut funding to vital services and pass voter suppression laws because they have “family values.” Sure. We’ll believe that when they stop invading our bedrooms, pass paid family leave and increase education and childcare funding.

In brief: My regular spot with Hal Sparks on WCPT Radio, Chicago!

Overview:

There are now eight clinics legally allowed to provide abortion care to the 5.4 million Texans of reproductive age. The Fifth Circuit, who’s ruling this week to impose the last measure of the omnibus anti-abortion law known as HB2 which has now shuttered 80 percent of the state’s safe abortion providers, estimated that 900,000 Texans will now need to travel more than 150 miles to access care.

In a state where barriers to birth control and other early reproductive health services means over half the pregnancies are unintended, this is nothing less than a public health crisis. From nearly 50 clinics a few years ago to 8 — and those in the eastern cities are also seeing patients from neighboring Louisiana.

SUPPORT Fund Texas Choice and the Center For Reproductive Rights.

Hal does a great job of calling out Justice Scalia for protecting Hobby Lobby’s “right” to deny its employees full use of their earned health insurance for reproductive care while the CEOs invest in companies that manufacture drugs used for lethal injections. ::drop mic::

And so, Hal and I will keep talking about this. Over and over and over all the way to the Supreme Court and through the next election when I promise you access to reproductive care will be front and center whether we’re Ready For Hillary or not.

In brief: Panel chat with some great repro justice advocates!

Overview

While I was in Texas, I got the chance to record a panel interview with some of my favorite reproductive justice activists. With the travel & moving cross-country (more on that later), I didn’t get the clip posted right away. So, here it is with the intro from our hosts at Emoprog Army Radio Hour:

Hosted by @violentfanon and @caulkthewagon, with guests Britni de la Cretaz, Natasha Vianna, Jessica Luther and Katie Klabusich. Britni and Natasha are Boston-based activists, Katie is a journalist and activist based in Brooklyn, and Jessica is a journalist and activist based in Texas. All are active in reproductive justice fights across the country.

We discuss the McCutcheon Supreme Court decision that struck down Massachusetts' abortion clinic free speech buffer zone law, as well as legislation set to be implimented in Texas that will result in the majority of reproductive health clinics closing. We also discuss ways to fight back against these measures as well as defend against the broader assault against reproductive rights in America.
