    Daily Signal Podcast: She Had an Abortion. Why She's Glad Roe Was Overturned.

    Daily Signal Podcast: She Had an Abortion. Why She's Glad Roe Was Overturned.

    Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This weekend, Problematic Women is sharing an episode of The Daily Signal Podcast where Virginia Allen interviews Cathy Harris.
    When she was 17, Cathy Harris had an abortion.
    After her abortion, Harris says she felt "immediate regret, immediate just grief that fell upon me."
    "I wasn't really sure what to do with it, where to put it," she recalls. "A lot of people, friends of mine had continued to tell me that's not a baby, just get over it, move on and I couldn't."
    It took a long time to heal from her abortion, but eventually Harris began sharing her story, and became a leader in the pro-life movement. She shared her story by writing the book "Created to Live: Becoming the Answer for an Abortion-Free Community."
    Harris joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss the Supreme Court's ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and what the decision means for the pro-life movement.

    On 50th Anniversary of Title IX, Biden Seeks to Undo Protections for Women

    On 50th Anniversary of Title IX, Biden Seeks to Undo Protections for Women

    It's been 50 years since the U.S. government acted to ensure equal educational opportunities for girls and women through Title IX. 
    Since put in place as education amendments in 1972, Title IX has prohibited sex-based discrimination in education programs, including competitive sports. 
    Title IX states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” 
    But the Biden administration is working to undo these very protections by redefining “sex” to include gender identity. If the far left succeeds in changing the definition of sex, Title IX would lose its power to protect women because men who identify as women would have greater access to compete on female sports teams and use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms. 
    On today’s edition of "Problematic Women," Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow Sarah Parshall Perry explains the fight to protect Title IX from this radical agenda. 
    Also on today’s show, we still await some big rulings from the Supreme Court, but this week it released one significant decision on school choice. We tell you what you need to know.
    Plus, Disney ruins another movie with its radical agenda. And as always, we’ll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.
    Enjoy the show!

    What It's Like to Be on a Puberty Blocker

    What It's Like to Be on a Puberty Blocker

    On this week's edition of the "Problematic Women" podcast, Gloria Taylor joins us to discuss her experience taking a drug that is sometimes used as a puberty blocker for minors: Lupron.
    Taylor, a senior communications manager at The Heritage Foundation, started getting injections of Lupron after being diagnosed with breast cancer. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.) She talks about the side effects--which range from depressed feelings to physical pain—and how stunned she was to learn that minors without cancer were being given this same drug.
    We also talk about a new Heritage Foundation study that looks at transgender treatment for minors and suicide rates with Marguerite Bowling, a senior communications manager at The Heritage Foundation. And are you having trouble finding tampons at the store? You’re not alone. We'll talk about the latest crisis in the supply chain shortage. And as always, we crown our problematic woman of the week.

    Betsy DeVos on Why Student Debt Cancellation Is ‘Not Fair’

    Betsy DeVos on Why Student Debt Cancellation Is ‘Not Fair’

    Roughly 45 million Americans owe a combined total of $1.7 trillion in student loan debt. If that were distributed evenly among the borrowers, each would owe close to $38,000.  Over the past two years, the federal government has paused collection of student loan payments because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, some Americans contend the government should forgive student loan debt outright.
    But what would canceling a $1.7 trillion bill mean for the American people? 
    “When we talk about this notion of forgiving student loans, what we’re really talking about is benefiting those who don’t necessarily need it,” Betsy DeVos, a former secretary of education, says. “And the ones who are going to be ultimately paying for it are those who’ve never attended college.” 
    DeVos joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to explain how the Biden administration should—and should not—address rising student loan debt.  She also addresses increasing concerns over the far left’s influence on education.

Re: Title 9 funding

If schools are looking for a way to generate income under the dissolution of Womens sports since they are cutting female athletes out by flooding the market with trannies. They could try selling government issued tampons out of the mens restrooms. I believe this thing will burn itself out. How many trans athletes are there?

I wish more people listened to this if anything just to be educated on how so much is happening and so few are engaged. Thanks for being voices. This is very hard work.
