Enhanced audio: The After Show — Bodily Autonomy vs Immigration & Anti-Sex Work “Feminists” (09/16/15)


Today Justice and I dug into the rift sex work causes in “Capital F” Feminism and why being an out ally as someone who has never been a sex worker is so important. We also talked about the immigrant in Texas who was reported by staff at her doctor’s office and arrested when she went for her annual exam. And then I gave an update on anti-choice violence with a report on the Washington Planned Parenthood rebuilding after arson — despite it not be a location that provides abortions. Pro-life setting shit on fire to stop life-saving preventative medicine.
