Feminist Sleeper Cell LIVE from Netroots Nation w/ Guest Robin Marty

Today is bittersweet- we have reached the end of our broadcast week at Netroots Nation! We are going out with a bang however, and are so excited to talk about state challenges to a judge’s decision to allow easier access to the abortion pill during COVID, plus amazing news out of the Yellowhammer Fund that supports abortion access and care in Alabama. The Sleeper Cell team is also pumped to be joined by author and journalist Robin Marty, who unpacks the dark history behind Operation Save America and their attacks on abortion access, LGBTQ, and non-Christian communities.
