Sami is joined by Marisa Kabas to talk about all the “heartbeat” abortion bills popping up lately. They start with details about the near-total abortion ban that passed in the Missouri senate yesterday. Next, they talk about the chances that this issue will make its way back to the Supreme Court. At 21:40 they’re joined by Amanda Reyes of The Yellowhammer Fund to talk about the Alabama abortion bill just signed into law. Amanda gives an inside look at what’s happening in Alabama and tells us how we can provide support to those fighting to keep abortions safe and legal. They discuss the limited number of clinics in Alabama, the extreme measures anti-abortion activists are willing to go to, and then close the show with their outlook on how this battle will play out.
