Note: This is what I do now; I’m an activist full-time. I’m completely committed to changing the face of clinic access in this country. If you can, consider supporting my work so I can do more of it by clicking HERE and making a one-time or recurring (just click the box) contribution. All the funding goes to equipment, travel to other conferences/clinics/meetings with pro-choice legislators/training new escort programs and supplies. Thank you!
I’m always glad to do Matt’s show! It’s another sexual assault and consent discussion-laden clip, so trigger warnings and self-care advisories for sure. We talked the broader implications of the George Will column and I’m happy to report that this show is posting the same day the St. Louis Post-Dispatch announced they’re dropping Will’s column! If that doesn’t sound that exciting because you don’t know midwestern papers, it’s a big one. It has a solid history and it’s going to cost Will in syndication pay. Also, someone has to be the first. Here’s to more of this: ”Major Newspaper Dumps George Will, Apologizes For ‘Offensive’ Rape Column”.
You should definitely check out the entire show — Episode 334 with Cliff Schecter & Katie Klabusich (06/19/14) — and subscribe already because it’s fantastic.
