Episode 107: Conscious UnCop-ling

This episode comes at the heels of Abortion Provider Appreciation Week (but they deserve love 365 days a year!!). Lizz, Marie and Moji tackle a scary week in abortion care friends, as violence at clinics is escalating. 

We cover a good law enforcement win in New York against harassers, but also do a deep dive into an alarming trend (and by trend we mean every day fuckery) of law enforcement cozying up to the anti abortion protesters. In just one week, there was gun violence at a North Carolina clinic, a patient attack in Kentucky, and we are joined by guest Melissa Grant, CEO of carfem, a clinic in Nashville that was literally invaded by dangerous prayer warriors. She brings a very personal and stark reality about how terrifying it is when clinics are attacked and their local police are on the side of the oppressors.  Really compelling.
