In brief: Back on with my friend Matthew Filipowicz to talk GOP attacks on access via abortion restrictions and my new #GetWell2015 series!

Enhanced audio: MFS 01/27/15 — All About Access: #Roe42 Meets #GetWell2015
More on the Roe anniversary with my anti-red state shaming and ditch your complacency rants for blue state residents. And we chatted about my #GetWell2015 series, how the GOP cares more about the contents of my uterus than the contents of my stomach, and the reality of access to healthcare in all its forms. Turns out medical, mental, and dental care are — GASP! — all medical care! This is no shock to poor people because we have always had to trade away, put off, and ration out our vision, dental, physical and mental health to balance our bills and grocery bills. How uncomfortable these realities make the privileged and our middle class relatives doesn’t change the messy overlaps become and how hard it is to juggle that many balls. (Yep; I’m going to find a way to fit balls into everything for a while because I hate the Patriots and inside I’m 10 years-old.)
