Overview:

In a departure from our recent stretch of optimism, Justice and I talked about the Fifth Circuit decision that will likely close all but 8-10 reproductive healthcare clinics in Texas. I broke down how this could affect the rest of the country and Justice brought up the important point that these closures eliminate more than abortion access from communities.

We also did a call to action for people to support the abortion funds on the ground in Texas before shifting to a brief mocking of Governor Rick Scott (FL) who wants his state to become the 14th requiring patients make two separate trips to a clinic before being allowed to terminate a pregnancy.

UPDATE: June 19th, the Fifth Circuit refused to stay their decision; The Center For Reproductive Rights is appealing to the Supreme Court to stay the decision before the clinics close on July 1.

Overview:

I’ll be honest: I’m having a hard time talking about this court decision. Watching as my friends prepare to reshutter their clinics has been rough emotionally. I couldn’t bring a ray of sunshine to this spot. In fact, I explain part of how this decision could negatively affect abortion access in the entire country depending on how SCOTUS handles the appeal.

If you want to help, you can support Fund Texas Choice, the abortion fund that helps Texans with travel logistics. They’re about to get even busier and the volunteers who answer the hotline are going to have to say no when their annual funds are depleted. Sending patients to New Mexico and helping them travel hundreds of miles in their own state is expensive and every dollar you give goes to someone in need.

In brief: Back on with my friend Matthew Filipowicz to talk about why the anniversary of Dr. Tiller’s murder matters six years later and good news in abortion access out of California and Indiana. No, that’s not a typo.

Overview:

To be fair, the GOP never has asserted that they’re much into abiding by the rules they impose on other people. Or, really, even the basic rules we’ve all agreed to live by.

This week Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) was indicted on charges that start with what amounts to tax evasion and are beginning to look like he was paying hush money to cover up sexual misconduct with a former student — a high school student. Hal and I did some extrapolation on this and how a culture that requires all sexual expression to be closeted leads to people seeking out power dynamics. What’s the best way to ensure no one knows about a sexual relationship of any kind? Have coercive power over the other person or persons.

And speaking of power, Scott Walker has thoughts on mandatory, unnecessary ultrasounds (yes, these bills would require them to be vaginal due to how far along the pregnancy would be): they're “just a cool thing" for women. Oh. I have thoughts of my own on this as well as Hillary’s hair color quip making national news.
