Episode 106: The Gaslighting in Texas is Off the Grid

Y’all this is a WEEK. We’ve got South Carolina trying to ban abortion before most folks know they are pregnant; HHS prospect Xavier Beccerra facing a barrage of questions about JUST abortion because THAT’S the health crisis we’re facing…SMDH AND if that isn’t bad enough one of Marie’s pet snails ate another one. PLUS- We are so PSYCHED to be joined by Maysoon Zayid, badass comedian, our favorite soap opera star AND and incredible disability rights advocate. She talks with us about the onslaught of abortion bans that target fetal anaomalies and down syndrome diagnoses and the disgusting way disabled folks have become pawns in the anti-abortion movements plans to ban abortion and the hypocrisy around it all!
