Overview:

The GOP honestly doesn’t understand how Medicaid — a health insurance program — works. YET ANOTHER STATE is trying to weasel out of reimbursing Planned Parenthood for services rendered. We discuss that and what it is I’m doing in our nation’s capitol this week. (Hint: it has everything to do with the amazing legislator in the show graphic.)

Overview:

All you need is the title. I have no idea how we crammed so much into just over 20 minutes, but we touched on the Oregon shooting and Governor Bobby Jindal’s ill-advised blog rant; the report out of Texas that says HB2 is having exactly the affect on patients seeking abortion we knew it would and know it does; Planned Parenthood plans to collect on an outstanding bill from the state of Arkansas; and Justice has an ingenious idea about gun control.

In brief: Great getting to be on with Sam and Sam! We talked the sham Planned Parenthood “hearing” and news/activism opportunities in reproductive rights and justice.

Overview:

Such a pleasure to be on with Sam Sacks and Sam Knight — two of those people I know from around the interwebs, but don’t get the chance to chat with all that often. They both do really important work that parallels mine without often intersecting it directly; you should follow what they’re up to starting with this spot.

We chatted about the sham hearing on Planned Parenthood’s funding, activism in reproductive rights and justice, and how anyone can get involved in the culture change of reducing abortion stigma as easily being supportive (or at the very least nonjudgemental) on their social media feeds.

Links to on-air references:

How to get involved (suggestions from the show): volunteer with your local abortion fund (public or private) & support the #BeBoldEndHyde/#4EACHOfUs campaigns from the All* Above All coalition.

My piece on #BeBoldEndHyde for Truthout: "Activists Decry 39 Years of Class-Based Discrimination in Abortion Access”

My piece on the groundbreaking legislation (#4EACHOfUs) & polling data for Truthout: "Widespread Public Support Bolsters Bill to End Restrictions on Abortion Coverage”

My piece on the attempt to defund Planned Parenthood for Truthout: "The Unseen Costs of Defunding Planned Parenthood”
