    Anti-Choice Lawmakers Declare the Constitution Null and Void in Indiana

    ALERT: Our new series We'll Hear Arguments comes out on 2/25! Subscribe here for the coolest breakdown of Roe v. Wade ever:

    https://rewire.news/arguments

    Now back to our regular programming: An alarming new bill in Indiana asserts that life begins at conception, and federal laws that “fail to protect a person’s inalienable right to life” are null and void in the Hoosier State. In other words, anti-choice lawmakers claim that the Constitution is null and void in Indiana—and their counterparts in other states could soon follow suit. On this episode of Boom! Lawyered, Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy explain the latest fad in anti-choice legislation and whether it could actually hold up in court.

Seriously? Y'all are the s*&t

Thank you Imani and Jess for bringing the REALNESS on your podcast!!! I'm an abortion provider and I am SUCH a huge fan. Your podcast has been so incredibly helpful for me in terms of understanding all the legal mumbo-jumbo that I never thought I would need to learn when I originally pursued a career in medicine!

Thank you thank you thank you for sharing your thoughts, ideas and explanations with us all. Thank you for all the work you do and for being so goddamn funny while you do it!

much <3

Thanks for being great

These two are hilarious and so informative. I’ve really appreciated everything I’ve learned from them about how the court system works so I can try to explain to idiots in my life that the president can’t make a governor rescind an executive order, and that you also can’t just take it to the Supreme Court. Thank you for giving me the tools to talk these people off the legal ledge.

Interesting topics but cyber bullying not my thing

I found the podcast interesting and the topics thought promoting. The hosts are substantive, though it’s not where I’d go for a balanced debate. I won’t subscribe and listen rarely after checking out Gandy’s twitter page which is essentially her cyber bullying others and I’m not into that scene.
