#RoeAt44 w/ @GynAndTonic of @ReproDocs & @KassiUnderwood — #KatieSpeakShow Ep72 01/21/2017

In brief: Well, it happened. So I’m opening the show with my thoughts recorded immediately following the inauguration. Then it’s on to celebrating what the new administration hates most: amazing, powerful women whose work is about health and healing! Dr. Diane Horvath-Cosper is an uncompromisingly fierce advocate and abortion provider. Kassi Underwood is an author and abortion storyteller whose politically inconvenient narrative has so much to teach those across the political spectrum. Both share their thoughts and their stories; both are inspiring at a time where we so desperately need it.
