This week, Gabe and Kellie discuss the hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch, which concluded this week. Judge Gorsuch made comments respecting Roe during his questioning, but it’s his actual record that worries us. He voted to strip women of access to contraception coverage in the Hobby Lobby case, and women everywhere are taking note.
In fact, because of the threat to the contraception coverage guarantees, the women at Lady Parts Justice have released their newest video, I’m Just a Pill! Gabe spoke to Julie Rosing and Abby Holland from the LPJ team.
Other LPJ videos have been hilarious, sharp commentary on politicians and sexual politics. Check out their YouTube channel for more, but definitely watch their Beyoncé parody, inFormation.

Women Have Options — Ohio Bowl-a-thon

5/3/17 in Columbus
* Freedom of Choice Ohio Lobby Day
Freedom of Choice Ohio will hold our annual Advocacy Day on May 3, 2017. This year, Ohio women and men will gather at the Ohio Statehouse to demand an end to the anti-woman agenda pushed by Governor Kasich and the legislature. Kasich has passed multiple abortion bans, defunded Planned Parenthood, and is using his Department of Health to harass abortion providers. We’ll learn more about the multiple threats to reproductive health care and a forthcoming proactive legislative agenda. Armed with information and training, participants will engage their legislators to show that their constituents do not support abortion bans or attacks on funding.
NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
Help build a pro-choice Ohio. Every day, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio fights to protect access to the full range of reproductive health care options—including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and safe & legal abortion care. We educate the public about the real threat to women’s healthcare posed by anti-choice legislation and policies. We mobilize pro-choice Ohioans to take political action to defend reproductive rights. And we are the voice for Ohio’s abortion clinics, helping them navigate the increasingly hostile climate created by extremist groups. But we need your help. As a member organization, we rely on your financial support to fund our important legislative, educational, and grassroots activities.
