In brief: So much is going on in reproductive health, Dr. Leah Torres is back on the show to do a round-up of the latest. States are on a (continued) rampage and the most extreme anti-abortion bill ever has been introduced in Congress. And, as I mentioned in last week’s intro, the GOP is trying to sneak “personhood” language into their tax “reform” proposal. Leah and I ran over time as usual, so look for a future bonus clip; Patreon subscribers have access to the full interview already at Patreon.com/Katie_Speak! Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you're able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
