Episode 115: Mess-issippi

The Cellmates wanted to rant and rant and rant about Texas’s new bullshit law that lets anyone with half a brain and an axe to grind to sue your uterus. But then the Supreme Court decided to take their super-conservative supermajority and weigh in on an unconstitutional 15-week ban, so this hydra had to switch gears. Luckily we have the litigation director for the Center For Reproductive Rights Julie Rikelman to bring her vast Mississippi  lawyer-ly genius and explains why we’re not wrong to feel like this is wrong. SO FRIGGING WRONG. 

Unfortunately Marie is out having a sad, but Lizz and Moji do the best we could without her.
