    Rerelease: Texas Abortion Ban (with Liza Fuentes and Jamila Taylor)

    Six months into Texas' near total ban on abortion, we are rereleasing this special episode of Cringewatchers, taped in September.

    ***

    This is not Texas' first rodeo.

    For this special episode, we talked to Dr. Liza Fuentes, a senior research scientist at the Guttmacher Institute and Dr. Jamila Taylor, director of health care reform and senior fellow at The Century Foundation about what's going on in Texas, what it means for abortion rights in the U.S. and what people can do to counter and prevent draconian attacks on our right to health care.

    How to find (and donate to)your local abortion fund:

Marieerose ,

Love this podcast!

If you’re not listening to this podcast, you're missing out! The content is both educational AND entertaining; I always enjoy tuning in. Lori and Leila are fantastic podcast hosts and include some really great guest speakers, too!

yeefunk ,

Real talk about sex!

Finally a podcast with knowledgeable, funny women talking about sex and sexuality in a way that’s accessible and entertaining. Can’t wait to hear what they’re binging on next!

Lisa in Baltimore ,

Thoughtful content & cool advertisers!

Although I love many things about this podcast (From the opening cringe/binge updates from the hosts to the engaging guests (I’m shocked AND educated every time I listen…)) I really appreciate the thoughtfulness that goes into the choice of advertising - I’ve learned about many women-run businesses & non profits and look forward to hearing more!
