    Overview:

    Justice and I talked the latest on the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs as well as how people can get involved — and how not to help. I suggested several organizations, including The Clinic Vest Project where I am a founding board member, and reminded people not to just show up in front of a clinic to counter protest or escort without contacting the clinic.

    I got a little choked up talking about what abortion providers go through. Dr. Willie Parker, one of the most public, vocal providers, is asking people not to be silent. It is the least we can do considering he and other providers risk arson, stalking, assault, and even death to make sure we have health care. Please read and post his op-ed and the interview with Dr. Chastine included below.

    Organizations to support:

    Donate & contact to volunteer: The Clinic Vest Project

    Donate & find your local fund to volunteer: The National Network of Abortion Funds

    Donate & follow to support independent abortion providers: The Abortion Care Network

    Netroots Radio After Show — #Roe at Risk: The Road to #SCOTUS (11/18/15)

    Netroots Radio After Show — #Roe at Risk: The Road to #SCOTUS (11/18/15)

    In brief:My regular feminist round-up spot with Justice!

    Note: I'm a writer and radio host full time, providing much of my content for free. If you can, consider supporting my work by becoming a patron at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

    Overview:

    I was on with Justice to talk about the Whole Women’s Health suit landing in front of the Supreme Court and how a new study out of Texas on people attempting to self-induce their own abortions ties into the importance of the upcoming SCOTUS decision. Reminder: the June decision on HB2 will either strengthen Roe, uphold it, or decimate it — which will affect the entire country. If the primary reason people self-induce is that they couldn’t access wanted/preferred clinic-based care, imagine what would happen with even fewer clinics should SCOTUS uphold the law.

    Hal Sparks Radio Prgm — #FightBackTX Update: Road to SCOTUS (11/14/2015)

    In brief: My regular spot with Hal Sparks on WCPT Radio, Chicago!

    Note: I'm a writer and radio host full time, providing much of my content for free. If you can, consider supporting my work by becoming a patron at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

    Overview:

    I was on to catch Hal’s listeners up with the latest on the Whole Woman’s Health case out of Texas, fighting the omnibus anti-abortion law HB2. This is the law Wendy Davis and the “unruly mob” successfully filibustered in 2013 — only to see Gov. Perry call another special session to pass it. The Supreme Court has decided to hear the case and I have the update, the timeline, and what’s at stake for the country.

    Hal Sparks Radio Prgm — #PPShooting & #Abortion Provider Violence (11/28/2015)

    Hal Sparks Radio Prgm — #PPShooting & #Abortion Provider Violence (11/28/2015)

    In brief: My regular spot with Hal Sparks on WCPT Radio, Chicago!

    Note: I'm a writer and radio host full time, providing much of my content for free. If you can, consider supporting my work by becoming a patron at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

    Overview:

    I was on with Hal to talk about the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs. WCPT was having technical difficulties, so Hal couldn’t hear me — which makes for a couple gaps in the segment. But my recorder works and hopefully you’ll still find the segment valuable. Hal has a tendency to unnecessarily include “mentally ill” in the categories of people who shouldn’t have access to guns as though we’re likely to be perpetrators, but the content of the back and forth is overall focused on rhetoric in politics and media that promote and excuse extremist, violent behavior like this against reproductive healthcare providers.

    Overview:

    We covered a fair amount today! We talked disappointing midterm results — as per usual as the right-wing turns people out and gears up their fear machine with well-funded precision. I also gave some much-deserved love to Margaret Cho who tweeted about her past as a sex worker and why she is the literal opposite of ashamed about it. Then I tied sex worker rights to abortion rights — a very short leap and both are fundamentally about bodily autonomy and economic justice/independence.
