In brief: The lovely Maureen Shaw is back on the show to update us on the current assault on reproductive health. Budget reductions, the revamping of abstinence-only sex ed (which is a public health hazard no matter what you call it), and the human rights bureau of the State Department cutting back its annual report — primarily in the section that chronicles racial, ethnic and sexual discrimination. This whole show is like an advertisement for why EVERYONE must vote in November to reduce this heinous, power-hungry president’s ability to pass permanent legislation. We may not have a shot at the White House for two more years, but we can flip Congress this November. Make SURE you’re registered at CanIVote.org.
