Our stint at Netroots Nation 2020 continues, this time with even more bad abortion news. While Arkansas is busy trying to make doctors call the police on pregnant minors (we cannot overemphasize how cruel this is), stop D&E procedures (the standard medical process for a second trimester termination), and allow a patient’s family to meddle in their abortion decision, WE NOW ALSO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE POST OFFICE. Plus, joining us is a trio of amazing activists, clinic professionals, and legislative experts to talk about the toxicity of the Hyde and Helms Amendments and how the US must reverse rules like these to truly give folks globally a chance at equitable abortion care.

Calling All Our US Postal Service Activists
The whores in this house are so excited to talk with Renee Bracey Sherman (We Testify), Morgan Hopkins (All Above All), and Jen Moore Conrow (Abortion Provider turned Consultant) about the cruelty imposed by the Hyde and Helms Amendments, restricting domestic and international funding for abortion care, and the overall barriers some of the most volunerable populations face in seeking abortion care.
