We should be watching this closely

Reproductive rights are in a dangerous place Hey John, I was alarmed by a recent article in Slate that described an underreported aspect of the war on reproductive rights. More and more healthcare workers are leaving their jobs in states with abortion bans due to the impossible situation…

I’m hurt by this comment from my colleague

Have you heard of the "JR-15"?
