Hal Sparks Radio Prgm — #NotoriousRBG & Repro Victories! (07/05/14)

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

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!

Enhanced audio: HSRP 08/02/14 — #NotoriousRBG & Repro Victories!

Overview

Hal and I talked repro wins, hypocrisy and a 2016 sneak peak (we’re only a year away from primary fundraising, folks)!

The Center for Reproductive Rights and Whole Woman’s Health are back in court Monday to fight the admitting privileges TRAP law slated to close all but six of the remaining Texas Clinics September 1st. (I’ll be there covering a few stories!) This will be an interesting back to back with the ruling in favor of the Mississippi clinic last week that allows its doors to remain open. Stay tuned…

And Hal and I gave some love to the Notorious R.B.G. — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. I tell you why we’re SO DAMN LUCKY she isn’t retiring as we comment on her new awareness of the pop culture fame she’s experiencing following the scathing Hobby Lobby decision dissent.

We also spent some time on the Satanists trolling Hobby Lobby to see how far the “firmly held religious belief” ruling can go. We all know religious beliefs come with a conservative Biblical interpretation requirement.
