Episode 71: Abortion Is Essential

Hey friends! Smells like quarateen spirit up in here! 

This week the cellmates are gathered and we are PISSSSSED!

Guess it’s not hard enough to wake up and figure out your life during a plague. Nope, the shittiest governors in America have decided to use a pandemic as an excuse to ban abortion. It is really scary and the states that are shutting down clinics are spreading faster than… well…really fast. 

Joining us on the pod to talk about what it’s like to be helping patients in one of those states, are Derenda Hancock and Kim Gibson founders of the non profit, We Engage and escorts at The Pink House, the last clinic left providing abortion in the state of Mississippi. Have a listen and learn how to mobilize with us online, it’s working!
