In brief: My latest HuffPoLive panel!

Host Zerlina Maxwell was kind enough to invite me on to discuss the latest attempts by the GOP to defund Planned Parenthood, what that actually means for reproductive healthcare in this country, and how it fits into the larger anti-choice movement’s plans to end access to abortion as well as preventative care.
I was psyched to be joined by Erin Matson, who — along with her ReproAction co-founder Pamela Merritt — was my first guest on The Katie Speak Show! It’s no secret I love their mission and it was great to have her weigh in. She tells the story of the oddest anti-choice tactic I’ve heard in a while from this morning’s Virginia Board of Health proceedings where Erin was present to testify against TRAP laws.
