Last week – what we missed
October 14, 2013
- Hear Hear! California expands availability of abortions. It’s nice to see at least one state moving forward on these issues.
- Meanwhile, another glimmer: ACLU Challenges Ohio’s Anti-Abortion Budget Amendments
- In all the noise about the government shutdown over the Affordable Care Act, you may have missed an important story: the case of a Nebraska judge denying a young woman in foster care an abortion because of her inability to get parental consent. If you did—or if you just want to see Rachel Maddow perfectly break down this heartbreaking story of politicians taking away women’s right to make their own private medical decisions— watch this video.
