Episode 73: The Abortion Roller Coaster Continues

SPECIAL GUEST: Eliza Hittman- Writer/director of the new film “Never Always Sometimes Rarely” 

Description: The cellmates Marie, Moji and Lizz hop on the abortion access roller coaster and ride with Texas as it dips in and out of access. As of now, a judge allows clinics to  reopen…but like a roller coaster, who knows what the next turn will be. Plus- while abortion clinics are being deemed by shitty politicians as “non essential” FAKE ABORTION CLINICS ARE ALLOWED TO REMAIN OPEN.Yep, lying to people about abortion is now deemed “essential”… Ugh, just ugh.
