26. SCOTUS and Life After Roe
With Justice Kennedy’s retirement and Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court there are a lot of anxieties about civil liberties in general, but specifically reproductive rights. On this episode, ACLU of Colorado Reproductive Rights Campaign Coordinator Delana Maynes interviews Reproductive Rights Policy Council Lizzy Hinkley on the real possibility that the Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade. Later we invite special guest Karla Gonzales Garcia, Policy Director at COLOR (Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights), who will explain why many women are already living in a post-Roe world. But first Delana interviews Executive Director of ACLU of Colorado Nathan Woodliff-Stanley who gives an overview of the most recent Supreme Court term.
Call To Action: Send a message to your senators right now to demand that they get Kavanaugh's clear position on Roe v. Wade on the record before the confirmation vote. Go to: http://bit.ly/2LCAhxp
