"Is in and if you just And this is political propaganda and they're handing out how to how to demonstrate. No, it going to have nothing but trouble with this one and they're going to the other thing that's going on, which is the lamest of the lame lame lame ideas. And so you see this David from the George W bush speechwriter and pundits always got a kind of a Grimace on his face. He's one of these guys they're trying this month and it's you're all over the place. They're tweeting and saying I I have my whole have no respect for anyone who would accept the Supreme Court nomination under these circumstances. That's very lame. That's his talking points. I wrote it up on the Macedon as a rewrite of the George V show Marx comment, which is I won't join a club that would have me as a member. It's a very similar kind of circumlocutious stupid argument. And and but yeah, yep. Thing I will have no respect the person if she was any good in the first place. You wouldn't accept the nomination under these circumstances so that and that's going to get absolutely nothing but ridicule wage. So so they have got nothing so far. I think the the people of Praise may have some legs but you know, it's they're going to have a hard time. This woman is the saint so what they're doing a very smart is a professor. Yes not actually a saint you should know that you Catholic Jesus figuratively. She's the Saints. Okay, This is going to come down to that's why the religious angle is brought up continuously is the mythical Roe v Wade, which I think I'd like to explain briefly for people outside of the US home. Just think it's about abortion and I think a lot of Americans inside the US don't really understand what it is either to dodge the entire conversation about dead. Abortions or not having an ordinance or either making it illegal or legal which of course is turned into pro-life pro-choice cuz we're too chickenshit to just say it off. Roe versus Wade was the whole conversation again, just because we're we're scared to really talk about it was subverted by a ruling that said what a woman and a doctor determined to do with her body is between them and is nobody else's business that is strictly private and no government. No any no one can go suck an interrupt whatever they're doing which whenever they say. Oh, they're going to overturn Roe v win. I don't even think that means that it makes abortions legal or illegal. It would be a privacy issue which it falls on a completely different ruling a different Amendment. Nobody understands this you brought this up at least 5 times and it off. Probably for the duration of the show. Yeah, okay, and the next thing you know, they're back to a portion legalized abortion is what it means. Okay, here's what I think a tactic is that they will use in the argument and if that's during her confirmation doubtful, but it will come up. Just I don't know how long ago that was the US government lifted a ban on risky pathogen research. You see scientists a fetal tissue remains essential for developing vaccines. So, you know, they're going to start throwing in that we're all going to die. If we can't get good fetal tissue pre-birth fetal tissue. It's really that ghoulish I think is the levels of take it too long. If it's not during the confirmation hearing it'll come up in some ruling or some discussion about it will yeah. It's going to be rough. It's going to be very rough. They had more fun with Cavanaugh cuz I could find this. Yeah rapist wage was much more fun rapist thing. Yeah, they can't do that with there's not a rapist the rapist thing now, I want to mention something that people people should note Ruth Bader Ginsburg overstays. You're welcome. She could acquit the job during the Obama Administration and quite easily been replaced by someone of her style of of jurisprudence off, but she didn't she risked 8 more years. She was eighty-seven when she died Brennan who was also on the on the list on the Supreme Court Brandon who quit wage During the Trump Administration so he can be replaced by Cavanaugh. He retired Brennan Brennan on the Supreme Court Brennan. Brand new why did Kavanaugh get in Scalia died? No, no. No, that's that's the other guy. That's Gorsuch. Okay horse. It's just replacing Scalia. Gavin or replaced Brennan who retired? Okay, I guess I wasn't there for that lesson. Well, it was only a couple of years ago, but it's easy to forget to look it up myself. So he quit at the age of 82, which if Gator Ginsburg had quit 82 had been during the Obama Administration. Let's go back to life. So Connor squid awesome. Sorry sure wasn't Kennedy. It could be Kennedy was a little different than Brennan. You had me really confused them. Like there was a Brandon but it's a different guy. Okay, Kennedy Kennedy quit at the age of eighty-two. I think got that part. Yeah, so he quits and then they then they get Kavanaugh and everyone thought that was a scam cuz all my God Kennedy quits, you know life. So the trunk get a point somebody. That's how you do how it works. Of course. It was what you would that's why Sandra Day O'Connor retired at seventy-five. He still alive. He could still be on the court technical usual but no no no she did the right thing. Well the point I'm trying to make besides the Brennan screw up is the is this woman Ginsburg? She screwed the pooch. It's her fault. Yes, and some people are mad about it. I've seen some some posts about it. Yeah, well, there's also say what you could also lived a couple more years and she would have squeaked by the book John doesn't get reelected. He's going to get reelected. We think that's why you got the the girls going crazy on the Selfies and the car you had to hang out till 2021 is what you promised Rose. right So anyway, so I blame her for this Fiasco what she said 87 and she wants to stay on the court. She's falling asleep all the time. She's nodding off. He's leaning over wage. It's embarrassing. She barely can stand. She can barely walk you got and she was cancerous for the least a decade. She should quit anyway. Yeah. No, I get your point you hate Ruth Bader Ginsburg ever said, oh, yeah. Yeah. I like her little dolls that you can buy and all the stores in Berkeley. I just thought they'd have dolls and erasers and pipettes little puppets Boodles. Yeah. I found the the origin.

The Supreme Court Fight
"President. Trump will reportedly nominate Amy Cockney Barrett, a favorite of social conservatives to be the new Supreme Court justice. The president's decision to be officially revealed at the White House later today. Has been confirmed to the BBC's US partners, CBS News and other U S media. She would replace the Progressive Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last Friday. Nomination will set off a bitter Senate fight to get her confirmed as November's White House election looms. Our correspondent in California is David Willis. I asked him about Amy Cockney Barris Bad is a devout Catholic. The mother of seven and assuming her nomination is confirmed by the U. S Senate, she will be the youngest justice on the Supreme Court bench. At the age of 48 was seen as a front runner to succeed Ruth Beta Ginsburg, but she is nonetheless the ideological opposite. Of the woman that she is expected to replace. Miss Ginsberg was the leader of the liberal wing of the court and unequivocally pro choice. Of course, Ms. Barrett has called abortion in moral and since being appointed to the Court of Appeals by President Trump. 2017. She has twice ruled in favor of restricting access to abortion. Hence, liberals see her appointment is a potential threat to row versus Wade. That's the landmark 1973 ruling, which legalized abortion nationwide here. A lot of Republicans are very happy. Yes, Republicans on deed. The president's political advisors hope that this election will energize his conservative political base. Evangelicals, religious conservatives In particular Democrats. For their part, I think there may be hoping that this could inspire liberal voters to take to the polls in defense of amongst other things, Roe vs Wade in the past week. In fact, they pull several polls. Have shown that most Americans, including many Republicans, believe that the next Supreme Court justice should be selected by whoever wins the presidential election here in November, and not by Donald Trump. Before then, on that subject, though, there has been some speculation. Hasn't there that if the result of the November elections is disputed legally, that possibly this new lineup of judges could intervene on the president signed. Well, that's absolutely right. Bear in mind that last other justices have been improved in presidential election years. None has been voted on. After July And four years ago, Senate Republicans refused to even consider then President Obama's nomination on precisely those grounds that should be left to whoever Was chosen as the next president, but as well as key issues such as abortion and immigration, universal health care, the US Supreme Court could, as you say, be called upon. To adjudicate the outcome off this forthcoming presidential election. Should the result be disputed, as they're now seems every chance that it will be President. Trump has repeatedly claimed, of course, that the Democrats that trying to steal the election he seems Poised to challenge any result. Really, that doesn't declare him the winner, and this week he refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses, and that's why And he's made this quite plain. He wants toe rush his nominee through the Senate by Election Day. How large in the psyche of American voters do you think the lineup of the Supreme Court is The Supreme Court is important, whether or not it actually masses a great deal to the average voter is another matter. I mean, they shape large parts. Off life here and, of course, they are appointed for life and its therefore significant that Amy Cockney Barents confirmation would shift The center of gravity on the Supreme Court considerably to the right, giving conservatives six off the nine seats, possibly for many decades, and the replacement of a liberal icon move played against the with an outspoken conservative like Amy. Tony Barrett has been called the sharpest ideological swing in nearly three decades as Faras, the highest court in the land is concerned, so the potential implications of this are significant. How much They actually count as Faras Day to day living. His concern of Americans here I think is another matter. The

Amy Coney Barrett 'to be picked by Trump for Supreme Court'
"Donald Trump will be announcing his supreme court pick on. Saturday which means that he already knows that the individualism according to sources close to Donald trump his selection will be judge Amy Coney Barrett Their York Times makes a point to mention that she would be the least experienced supreme court nominee however she is a favorite among conservative politicians and conservative voters because of her Christian background but also more importantly and I think this gets left out in a lot of the analysis in the media. She also would immediately invalidate the affordable care act she's on the record. Saying that whereas you know the thing that people seem to be more focused on right now is Roe v Wade which you know obviously I don't WanNa be naive and just assume that she won't touch Roe v Wade but she is on the record saying that she believes in the precedent when it comes to reproductive rights even though she as a devout Catholic disagrees with abortion and all of that but Emma I wanted to get your thoughts. We're talking about this a little bit during the break talk a little bit about what this means for the affordable care, act? Certainly. So that's my concern too. I mean we're both women. We obviously have concerns about our reproductive health but I think there is a hesitance in terms of justices overturning that precedent because of the ripple effects and how massive and that it would be I feel like it's just more of a political talking point for Conservative politicians to score points than it is a judicial reality. That's the only thing saving us here. What should concern everybody is that she's forty eight years old she has a history of pro-corporate positions that side with the with the employer against employee etc I believe and she's sided against. I'm reading some of it here. Things in gun rights she descended in a decision that would disarm felons for example, after they came out of prison, she's pretty extreme when it comes to those issues but for the affordable care. Act's guys if it's six to three if she gets through and it's that solidly conservative, they're going to do away with the affordable care act and then that's a conservative basically supermajority for decades at that point say ideally, we got the Progressive President in twenty twenty four who wants to put Medicare for all through. That's dumb. That's what concerns me most about these decisions are yes. The Supreme Court's been pro-corporate for a very long time for the Romney says, we're a center right country and the courts been leftist for awhile talk to him about Bush. Gore in citizens united whatever. But but but yeah, that's what scares me the most about. This is the complete mixing of any legislation that comes through that could be progressive. That's appealed Conservatives Appeal Appeal Appeal go the Supreme Court and they know. It's just going to be overturned. INCORPORATIONS can have a field day in big Pharma will be doing great. Yeah I am definitely worried about this. You know representative Ro. Khanna introduced a bill that would limit the. Time Supreme Court justice could serve on the Supreme Court to eighteen years. I don't know where that piece of legislation is GonNa go but I I do think that it's important that you mentioned her age as you just did and how. Her influence on the court will have a lasting ramifications on on this country really and yeah, the pro-corporate angle is something that just seems to get lost in the fray lost in the analysis and I'm glad that we're talking about it in a story that will cover later donald trump signed more ridiculous phony executive orders alleging that he's protecting people with preexisting conditions. The truth is those executive orders constitutionally speaking have no teeth but what it does is it messages to his voters that don't worry don't don't be frightened of the repeal of the affordable care act because signed executive orders. They're not going to do anything, but you know it's just enough to cover his ass while also simultaneously causing great harm to honestly all Americans because anything could be considered a pre existing condition. If you tested positive for cove it, that's considered a pre existing condition. So this is going to have. A damaging effect on so many people in this country I wanna read a quote from from this piece in the New, York? Times it's by Aaron. Who's president for the old Alliance for Justice a liberal group. She says, Amy Coney Barrett Meets Donald Trump's to litmus tests. She has made clear that she would invalidate the affordable care act and take healthcare away for millions of people and undermine. A woman's reproductive freedom. Again, I'm not entirely sure that the Supreme Court would overturn Roe V. Wade I know that there's a lot of fear about that. I understand that fear a lot of my fear again has to do with You know corporate shoes that make it to the Supreme Court and what is very likely to happen to the affordable care act at this point and remember the Supreme Court did strike. The healthcare mandate, that's an important part of the affordable care act. That's what kept premiums low, and you know when they undid that, of course, premiums immediately shot up and so we'll see how this all plays out, but it is pretty terrifying.
US Supreme Court: The possible nominees to fill vacancy
"Of you paid attention to who the possible nominees are. People are talking about Amy Kuney Barrett and Barbara Lago do you know but these judges and can you tell us anything about them? Sure I mean there. It's almost certain to be Amy Coney Barrett. Just because trump has generally deferred to actually others throughout his four years especially when it comes to the higher court, the Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court, and there's really a pretty big consensus around amy. Barrett, there some talk that like trump would be helped in Florida if he went the other way. But I'll be I'll be very shocked if it's not her now she is you know a a more or less. Predictable right wing jurist. I think her her confirmation. We'll have enormous effects just because I think it's clear. She's a reliable vote to overturn Roe v Wade where. Probably, in her absence, they would just continue cutting the meaning of that precedent down. You know because even as of today it's it's been made so hard to get an abortion in the south that weather would wanNA speak of. A meaningful federal right to abortion is already open to question in in many other areas. She'll just confirm that drift to the supreme, court in this liberal direction, which actually some of the Democrats on on the panel have have kind of colluded and in taking it toward in recent decades. So the addition of one person is rarely like catalytic or transformative. Maybe on this one issue of abortion, it would actually lead five of the justices without chief justice, Roberts to overturn Roe v Wade, which might not happen otherwise and I'm not suggesting that's not a big deal. It is, but probably in most other areas of law, it would just be like the same more of the same except more. So so so what are the different ways that you see this playing out Let's say this happened than Biden is elected He then gets to replace I assume the next soon to retire Justice Briar I believe, right? I mean. We. Assume that Clarence Thomas would try to outlast Joe Biden in the same way that Ruth Ginsburg tried to outlast Donald. Anything could happen right and you happen and of course, we should probably talk about interesting relationship between Biden and Clarence Thomas. How much of a? Let's go there. How much did Biden in neighb- ball Clarence Thomas is Supreme Court. Or empower him as a sitting Supreme Court justice while he was instrumental as as the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, I mean you know we can get personal. But in we've all seen, you know whatever the you know the Netflix's reenactment of this level. But you know the truth is that Biden you know maybe like all of us only more so again has been a prisoner of his time all the way along and at that moment The He he responded you know as part of the like con, the comedy of the Senate required. You know he hung out with these other white men and they decided that this wasn't a big enough deal and there was deference even in a democratically controlled Senate to the you know right of the president to nominate a supreme. Court justice when a seat is vacant we've totally given up those those norm sense really as a country, but you know within the Senate to. You know I definitely think he sh- his treatment of Anita Hill is part of the record that we ought to think seriously about it's mainly testament to changing norms in the country about gender and about sexual violence and so I but I. so but I would kind of broaden out to less about his own limitations which may be substantial and more about you know. Where we've come why really starting with Robert bork before through the Clarence Thomas Nomination, and through our time we've we've really converted national politics into like these psycho dramas around filling supreme court seats, and again, the reason is not having to do with any of these individuals Biden Thomas. it's more with what's at stake, which is policy making authority over all Americans and it it is. It's. It's hard to argue that this particular institution auto habit

She is about his conservative, A sitting appeals court judges you will find she has cast votes during her just three years on the seventh Circuit that make clear that she holds an extremely expensive view of the Second Amendment so would likely vote to strike down. Gun regulations. She seems to have even a more expansive view of the Second Amendment.

Trump-appointed justice could signal major Supreme Court shift on abortion
"Is likely to dominate the confirmation hearing for President Trump's latest Supreme Court appointee. KCBS political reporter dug, Sovereign says If the new court overturns Roe v. Wade abortion would remain legal in California, but probably not in a number of other states. You see Hastings distinguished long Professor Joan Williams, a renowned feminist legal scholar. Has no doubt Roe v. Wade will overshadow all else during confirmation of President Trump's nominee to succeed with Bater Ginsberg, and that could alter the outcome of the election. On the one hand it could cut for Democrats. If this galvanizes the suburban voters that were already trending for Biden and younger voters who have Not been homage to say politely. They have not been over the galvanized, um, On the other hand, this could really hurt. Biden's in among the voters. Those 80,000 voters, white working class voters who delivered the last election to Trump, Williams says. If a more conservative court tosses out the federally guaranteed the right to an abortion, women won't be able to get one and as many as 30 states in America's Heartland states that are certain where abortion pretty certain proportion abortion would remain legal. They're basically on the East Coast on the West Coast. California is so heavily Democratic. It's hard to imagine any changes to abortion law here. But on our show, the state of California, Williams said many women in the Midwest and South would have to drive hundreds, even thousands of miles to obtain a safe legal abortion, which means they wouldn't Doug Sovereign
Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.

So the Apple Watch is seeing a couple of upgrades or price adjustment. So there's a watch Six. I believe a watch s ee. What's the story with the Yeah, They've got too much to models every year, they updated and once again they they've added some really huge features on the series six, which is their main line open. Spend $300 for it. Watch. They've added blood oxygen sensors to it. So it has basically as you're wearing it, a Chinese light that shines light and You three or screen for your skin and incentive, the color of your blood and the blood. Yeah, so and works as ah, of course, better than the production centers, a lot of a spot for the covert epidemic but the really cool things, But the apple other companies will add these beach at features to fitness watch, But it's just sort of a feature. Apple did such a great job of integrating with everything else. So this blood oxygen center? Yes, you can. You can decide. Hey, please tell me what my blocks in saturation levels right now. But it will also just keep sensing it is, of course, the day so if there's any alarming sort of a change, it will give you an alert saying, Hey, this is unusual even works as you're sleeping. So s so if for whatever reason, you're part stops putting your heart your lungs stops putting oxygen in your bloodstream at the rate that would be considered compatible human life. They consent that and say Here's an incident that happened last night. I don't know you should probably it won't get won't give you medical advice, but It is a piece of data that might move you from. You know what? I really have been having really terrible sleep Well at night at night after night after night. Maybe I should have got it. I've got a check up with my doctor in a couple of weeks. Maybe I should bring this up course The Boche will provide the doctor with all the data of what it was. It's been observing. Well, thanks for being with us. I just want to go back to one thing that you said is we wrap it up here. You said that the watch shines a light into your skin. Yes, well, we know that the purest courses pretty translucent. So if that's the way it doesn't that's AH along Go. I won't tell you too long here, but that's one of the interesting sort of limitations of these business watches. But of course, it can't do anything that sort of breaks. The skin on DH presents one of the holy grails of fitness watches. Being able to take lunch, blood sugar readings or two and do stuff like that. But unfortunately, there has been some experimentation that way, but there's no way to do it. But with blood oxygen, they found ways around it that again. They're not taking obviously not taking a blood draw, which is the most most efficient way of doing it. But it's good enough and the science is solid enough. For the purposes of this fitness, But you can tell you particularly when you're exercising. Yes. You're reaching the blood of your reaching the blood levels. So the action levels you're supposed to be targeting. As you're working out. You're getting healthier and healthy as it goes. Well, thank you, Andy. I really appreciated. You know, I'm sort of behind the curve on all this technical stuff and you've explained it, Even I can understand it Amazing. Thanks. And thanks to him every day you do You know what? It just struck me, though. The

"roe" Discussed on Serious Inquiries Only
"You know people who If they if they're poor if they don't have any money if like there's always going to be an opportunity to sell yourself in a certain way you know in the same way that I think like you look at. I don't know a candice Owens or something there's always gonna be people have marginalized groups who then turn around and say well. I can actually have a whole lot of notoriety and success if I become a spokesperson for like the other side. You know and then all of a sudden you're on Fox News and you're everywhere and I just kind of price that in like a yeah. That's that's always going to happen. It doesn't for me. It doesn't like convince me either way but I don't know if the right is more about like spokespeople than arguments or not. I can't tell I mean so. That's that's it's it's hard for me to answer that question. Don't you obviously my biopsies are GONNA show here? I don't think the right is particularly good at arguments or logic. I think they tend to get these questions very very wrong. I think what they're very good at is narrative and selling a story in a way that the left is not good at and the left very often wants to sort of respond to the right wing. By saying we have the superior arguments we have the American College of Obstetrics and gynecology on our side. We have the American Medical Association putting out a statement saying that abortion is essential care and should not be interrupted during the pandemic and the right is like we don't care look at this grieving. Women coup is the face behind Roe v. Wade crying about the dangerous at abortion poses to women which is something that Norma mccorvey was saying in the eighties or the nineties after her conversion which was false and so I think we ground there. I'd also I thought the short answer is no. I don't think the right cares about logic arguments and the truth unfortunately is I think that's to their advantage because I don't think most people are going to change their minds based on arguments and reason in fact like most studies bear this out. People actually don't deliberate themselves or their way and most moral judgments that they hold were swayed by stories. We're pulled in by narrative emotion. And that's what makes Norma mccorvey story to me so tragic because this is a woman who was vulnerable. Her whole life and whose vulnerabilities were exploited for the personal gain of people who were not her and I think that is so often the case in terms of abortion and motherhood is well. That's not something that often gets paid attention to one of the things that I keep thinking about during this pandemic as you keep seeing reports and hopefully we're gonna get to talk about this of increasing domestic violence. During Times of pandemic women are locked at home with abusive partners. The the socioeconomic factors that exacerbate abuse are worse because people are losing their jobs. They're isolated. They've lost healthcare. One sense of of meaning and location in the in the world has been has been lost and whether or not women have access to to medical resources or psychological. Health resources has so much to do with their particular. Vulnerability is and how their socio economically situated? And this is all present Norma. Mccorvey case like her dad left when she was thirteen years old. Her Mom was a violent alcoholic And She described these periods of her life when she was in this like therapeutic boarding school as the best years of her life because she was taken away from her home that was violent and disruptive and so she would lash out on purpose to get in trouble to be able to be sent back and then at one point. She sent to live with a cousin who she claims you know regularly raped her. Obviously she's accused of being a liar after she says this and this is just a woman who's never had agency over her own life and to whether or not she was paid to be an antiabortion activist or not. This is the story of a woman who's because of the way that pregnancy impacted her was denied agency over most of her life. And I think ultimately that's what makes reproductive rights so important. Yeah you know as you're talking about You know arguments versus narratives. I just remembered there is the shot your abortion Which I think is a is now an an organization. I can't remember. It's been a while since I came across it but I pulled it up just now and That that was all about normalizing the experience of abortion Is that something you're familiar with? I've seen that I. Yeah I've definitely yes if you WANNA talk about it when like man's playing it but it's I looked on twitter and it's got you know forty five hundred followers so I guess it's not it hasn't taken off quite as much as like a a candice Owens type thing but But it but I guess that that that came to mind is like an attempt to try to tell the story which I think would be compelling which is there are all kinds of women. Obviously a there are all kinds of people who get abortions. Don't regret it. It's a good thing for them. It's healthcare it's you know like their choice and normalizing that make sense so that came to mind. I think that's a that's a good organization. Yeah that sounds awesome. You know things like that. I worry about things like that. Only to the extent that to be able to shout your abortion one must already have quite a bit of privilege and be very different from me right like I had an abortion. And so it's very for me to sort of talk openly about that because I don't have to navigate communities where having had an abortion as the sort of thing that is going to cost me a job that's going to cost me the respect and esteem of my peers. Inouye as they're going to be additional negative consequences that come along with me saying like hey. I had an abortion. I have no regrets about that. Turned out to be a great thing for me. I'm so glad that I did it. where there are people who are in different sorts of communities where it could impact their job. It could impact their social relations like at this stage in my life. For example this is very silly example but like I wouldn't even consider dating anybody for example who has an ardently pro-choice but it may be you know maybe an Alabama Missouri you know that's going to to further have implications for one social circle or how to date are how one may be viewed and so it just gets into really weird things. Get into really weird territory. You put the sort of like performance. Tive pressure on like disclosing one's medical history. Yeah I mean I think it's a it's a social media thing I don't think they they take anonymous contributions it's not as though they're saying. Oh Catholic. Stand up and physically do it. But it's it's about kind of collecting those stories. I think and trying to harness harness the power of those stories so yeah. Do we WANNA talk. Maybe about abortion general. Kind of getting off the row. V Wade specifically Norma mccorvey story unless you had anything more on.

"roe" Discussed on Today, Explained
"In Millhauser you covered the Supreme Court for Vox. And you're at the court yesterday for oral arguments in this case. June Medical Services v Russo. How did it go? It's a little surprising. So when I woke up Wednesday morning I thought those zero percent chance that the Supreme Court would vote to strike down this antiabortion law okay and when I left. I was a little surprised by Chief Justice Roberts who is very conservative and very conservative in particular on abortion I left. There's a thirty percent chance that he will flip over and vote to strike down the antiabortion law which means the clinic would win and the state of Louisiana would lose. That's right I think there is at least some chance that there's going to be five votes in favor of the clinic here on the reason. Why is that? The state claims that it passed this law in order to protect patient's health and Robert seemed unpersuaded at times by that argument. It's not a convincing argument. There's very little empirical evidence for it. Hope Medical Center the abortion clinic at the heart of this is performed about seventy thousand abortions and only four of those have led to complications that required hospitalization. So you know if your fear is that. There's this epidemic of People who are having complications after they have an abortion require hospitalization. And they can't get into the hospital because there isn't fear not problem has already been solved by the fact that abortion is very safe and the chances that abortion patient is going to require. Hospitalization is vanishingly. Small is the argument that the clinic made in front of the court yesterday. That's right yeah so the clinic and I and I should point out like some of our listeners. Be Having Deja Vu here. The reason why they might be having Deja Vu is because in two thousand sixteen. There's a case called whole women's health. V Heller Stat chief justice and May it please the court? The Texas requirements undermine the careful balance struck and Casey between faiths legitimate interests in regulating abortion and women's fundamental liberty to make personal decisions about their pregnancies. They are unnecessary health. Regulations that create substantial obstacles to abortion access and what the Supreme Court said in that case. Is that admitting privileges. Laws do not benefit patients and basically all at the clinic was arguing. This case was hey that thing that you said less than four years ago still true the Federal District Court after trial found the two provisions were unconstitutional. They constituted undue burden on a woman's right to choose. The Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit reversed. We in agreed with the District Court and we reversed the court of Appeals. So why here the case then? They've already decided something so close in Texas. The biggest difference between whole woman's health the case from four years ago and June medical. The case that was heard this week has nothing to do with the facts of the cases. Nothing to do with the law has everything to do with the personnel on the Supreme Court four years ago Justice Kennedy was stolen the court and Justice Kennedy. You Know I. I wouldn't call him a huge defender of abortion rights. You voted to strike down the overwhelming majority of the abortion restrictions. That came before him. But every now and then he would see a restriction. That goes too far. You're cutting too far in into this core constitutional right that Mike Boorda's recognize and that's what he said in whole woman's House Kennedy's gone on Kennedy was the fifth vote whole women's health and his replacement. Brad Kavanagh has a very consistently antiabortion record in making your argument you ignored and I believe mischaracterized Supreme Court precedent. You reasoned that Jane Doe should not be unable to exercise our right to choose because she did not have family and friends to make her decision. The argument Rewrite Supreme Court precedent and Gorsuch is also fresh to the court from that two thousand sixteen decision. That that's right yeah. Neal gorsuch was appointed to replace justice. Scalia who actually died. While the whole woman's health case was pending so did gorsuch and cavenaugh weigh in on Wednesday in any way. That might suggest how they're going to vote. So gorsuch was quiet at the oral argument but based on his record when he was a lower court judge he took a very aggressive steps against planned parenthood. Like I'm pretty darn confident that core such is going to cast antiabortion votes. Cavanaugh also signalled that he intends to vote with the state here and Kavanagh's argument so remember that whole woman's health the Texas case said that admitting privileges don't do anything to benefit patient health and it also said that. It's also really hard for doctors to get these things early for abortion. Doctors take to get amazing privileges and so this is a huge burden for no benefited struck down capital. How do we know? That's true in Louisiana. Sure it might be true that in Texas. It's really hard for abortion doctors to get these credentials but maybe it's different Louisiana. Is it no? It's not the American Medical Association and the Medical Association representing Obstetricians and gynecologists filed an amicus brief where they said Nope Zane the evidence in the case suggests that it's the same there several doctors in this case who tried to get admitting villages and weren't able to do so you know and and often it was for the exact reason that I said. I like one of the doctors for example only provides medication abortions and doesn't really have much of a medical practice beyond like every now and then prescribing on medication abortions and so. This person admits pretty much. No one to a hospital because there's no need that for any of this. Doctors patients go into a hospital and so that person would have really tough time getting omitting village. In fact the state's own expert witness admitted that yeah that that doctor would have a tough time getting admitting privileges. So what's the bigger picture here? We know from what you said about giving the state a thirty percent chance of winning this case here that Louisiana would go from three abortion clinics to maybe just one bright which would make the procedure even more restrictive in the state. But but what's going on here with the Supreme Court Roe v Wade and this new cast of characters. So this case is likely to come down to Roberts you know he was the only person I saw up there who seemed in any way uncertain about how he would vote. And Roberts really doesn't like Roe v Wade you know if the lawyer for the state had come in and said we think that Roe v Wade was wrongly decided and and we think that this court should overrule at. And here's the argument for why. This should be overruled and they've just been opened about what they were trying to accomplish. I think there's a really good chance Roberts would have said like that's what I want to. What the state did instead is. It passed this law which is really an abortion restriction but it's Kinda disguised as a health regulation and then they asked the justices to say like we want you to pretend that this lol is going to protect people's health even though we can't provide you much evidence that it will and even though you said for years ago that it won't and even though our lawyer is now in an oral argument and the liberal justices peppering her with questions asking her to Find Demonstrate. Evidence. This will protect women's health and she's unable to do it. The state was asking the justices to participate in a pretty deceptive. Act here. There's a chance that Roberts isn't GONNA go there. But what does it mean for the next case that comes? That isn't handled this way. That doesn't have this precedent. What does it mean when someone comes to the Supreme Court to this to this new cast of characters gorsuch and Cava and says Row v? Wade is bad law. Yeah I mean I think the bad news for people care about abortion rights is. I think that there's a chance that Roberts gives Roe v Wade a stay.

The main author of Roe was Harry Blackmun. Who did a great service to American women and I know way mean to at all to denigrate him but for him? Writing row was all about protecting acting. Doctors it's not that he was unsympathetic to women getting abortions. But you know if you read the language of Ro It's the physician and his his capacity.

Therefore only women are denied certain quote benefits such as being able to participate in society because of unwanted childbearing..

That things needed to change had McGuinness was the fire and she advocated for total repeal of all abortion laws. She helped connect women to illegal abortion providers or ones out of the country. She also taught them how to do it. Themselves had McGinnis never asked women why they needed abortions. She just trusted that each one had her own good reason the. The U Approve of abortion for any reason. Some hundred thousand women every year. This is California women alone subject themselves improperly properly or illegal abortion I think that in itself is a rather staggering figure and I feel great indignation as a woman to think that women in half subject themselves to second rate medical care for a safe surgical procedure but women like Pat McGinnis mark gaining traction with mainstream America. It took women talking as Mother's about disability for the idea of abortion rights to gain. Traction I think a lot of in feminism lost cars did not WanNa look at what this meant that German measles was about birth defects and disabilities. That this is this is a scary thing to touch. That's what they began talking about that. It's it's as mothers. They make this decision and eventually they do change.

It's the baby boom. It's not exactly easy for women to avoid Loyd children their their lives are often wrapped up and children. We probably don't have to tell you that when these women brought their babies home they were the primary caregivers because of the lack of societal support because of how hard that made it to keep special needs children at home and how expensive it could be. Many parents saw no other option but to place their children in institutions in fact doctors often pressured parents to institutionalize their children at birth Newborn infants are institutionalized commonly at that time there advised institutionalized the blind child the intellectually impaired. Child disc- Oh have another baby in some ways. These women were losing their children no matter what if this all sounds like a trap. That's because it was there was no ideal or perfect choice here.

"In nineteen sixty two the US. Watch from a distance as the so-called the Litt- mine disaster her hit Europe. The drug was thought to be so harmless it was given to women for morning sickness. Of course later we realized it wasn't harmless at all. There were a whole range range of disabilities associated with the limited but the FDA never approved it so people in the US saw themselves as having avoided a tragedy which reminds us of the undercurrent running through this entire story. A deep seated fear of disability when housewives began demanding abortions. It wasn't just that mainstream society saw them as nice respectable ladies who of course should make decisions about their own bodies for themselves. It's it's that. Each one was seeking an abortion for a very specific reason to prevent what mainstream society saw as a tragedy. A disabled child. Okay all the little sparked the anxiety among women but rubella made it persists and so to understand the world they're living in. This is what they're being told there. Are these headlines. There's going to be twenty thousand damaged babies in the United States with German measles and they're calling deformed and dangerous children that are going to be born so picture that people had in their minds and the pictures that were running the newspapers at the exact same moment where pictures of the solidified babies as they were called and Faber called freaks and monsters. This was the picture in people's minds and they were terrified the response to the forecasts of so called damage. Rubella babies was widespread panic and it was considered a crisis in the making but a huge part of that crisis was was actually the social situation that these children would land in beyond the stigma around disability. which let's face it still very much exists to this day? A in the nineteen sixties. There was zero material social support for babies children or adults with disabilities. They don't think at all about well. What can we do? The baby's we'll how could we improve the world for them. It doesn't come up as a question. Everything that might be needed was on the shoulders privately of the parents in terms of education in terms of Therapy medical needs. There's no right to public education. There's no mainstreaming does not like a disability rights movement. This is all in the future in fact many parents of children with congenital. Rubella Syndrome went onto advocate for disability rights and unhelped eventually get the Americans with disabilities act passed. Of course that's still decades away but it was this historical moment in the specter of solidified enters the American consciousness that abortion to enters the debate in nineteen sixty one Sherri Chessen was living in Arizona with her husband and four young children. She was pregnant with her fifth when she took something. Her husband had gotten Europe. I can still remember him putting him up in the high high highest cabinet in our kitchen why he was saving them. I have no idea never thought of that till this moment. Then why did he save them. Sherri Chessen by the way is called Sherry Finkbeiner in almost all the media we found of her. She told us that think behind was her first husband's name but it was never her legal name so in a sense she says the Kress created. Sheri Fink Fine. Sherry became the first woman in the country to deliberately tell the public like about her decision to get an abortion but that was not her original plan she quietly went to her doctor in Arizona and he consented to a therapeutic abortion Shen but before the scheduled procedure she started to worry about all the other women who might find themselves in the same position. My first thought was Oh my God. The Air National Guard from Phoenix had been in Germany the year before so I thought maybe they brought it back and other mothers others would inadvertently take it like I did so. She called the newspaper and anonymously told a reporter her story that Monday on the front page of the paper was an article with the Words baby deforming drug may cost woman her child here. It did not name He. At that time it came close at Scottsdale mother of four and I think it said that Bob was the teacher at Scottsdale High School. It didn't matter what was printed. The county attorney announced that any doctor gave her an abortion would be violating Arizona's US abortion law which remember only permitted them if the woman was going to die Sherri doctor called her at work and told her he couldn't go through with even so I put the phone down and instead of crying. Like I'm Kinda doing now. I put my hands on my hips and said I'm calling the county attorney's office and I called and I said I just WanNa know what the attorney general has to do. Oh with interfering in any families Decision to Take care of their what they think incas best for their own family Sherry did get an abortion but she had to go to Sweden to do it every doctor she approached in the. US refused her. For fear of being prosecuted. Her story became a sensation and reporters documented every step of her experience. Here's a news clip from nineteen sixty two justice. She's leaving for Sweden supplant. What are your plans after Sweden and so worried about today that I just want to do what's right for myself in my family and I don't feel bitter towards anyone I i? I don't feel bitter towards people who opposed as religiously. I only hope that they can feel that we're doing what's best in our case in in in could feel some of what's in my heart and trying to prevent the tragedy for happy. As American women watched her story unfold. They learn two things. One was how dangerous solidified was. The second was how hard it was to get an abortion for what people increasingly saw as a valid reason and even though she was an unlikely spokesperson for abortion she was also kind of the perfect one to change the conversation in nineteen sixty one. The media framed abortion as dangerous and women who got them as sexual deviants or at best victims then along came Sherry. She was young married white and a mother four times over in fact she was also also pretty and practically made for. TV In fact she was actually the beloved host of a Children's TV. Show called the Romper Room. She was completely inoffensive. Offensive to nineteen sixties Middle America and she went on. TV and very sweetly told the world that she needed an abortion and she explained why and they listen to her Jerry think by CETERA. Nineteen sixty two might controversy was also at face press conference immaturity. I I am not an expert in field. I have studied the question. I'm not a doctor. A lawyer I am not so few logically involved at all I know is that I was somebody who needed one. Under certain given conditions a Gallup poll showed that fifty two percent of Americans approved to her abortion. But there ever so many people who didn't approve to put it mildly that the F. B. I.. Had to help protect her family. Negative reaction was pretty damn ugly. I will tell you a in some of these letters that they would send me a picture of myself with dagger through my head with blood running down the worst ones were pictures that people would send cutting the limbs off my children and it was heartless it was criminal was insane and we asked Sherry. She was surprised that she had to leave the country to get an abortion. I guess shocked would be more than than surprised because I thought my doctor would just pop me in the hospital. I realized one day I had poison myself with a manmade poison poisoned. I was going to get a man made Dr to to get that poison out from me and I just fought till two. I was successful but the trouble is pregnancies. Don't wait while you're fighting. I was lucky I found this out when I was just a couple couple months pregnant so I had more time because I always felt I felt quickening. You know the baby move I was I was unique gone because then it would become instead of fetal growth. As I was told to think of it it would become a baby. And I didn't want it to be a baby.

"An estimated twenty to thirty thousand thousand children were born with a congenital rubella Sandro as the result of the nineteen sixty four sixty five rebel epidemic in the United States So imagine this it's the mid nineteen sixties and you're pregnant. There's a rebel epidemic sweeping the country. It's very contagious. Rubella is in a wave kind of like Zeka it's pretty harmless for most people even most children but when it's contract during pregnancy and see it can cause devastating birth defects and developing fetuses. This is a news clip from nineteen sixty nine crippling abnormalities. Bad sight and hearing Heart Activities Mental Retardation at least twenty thousand other babies were still rubella epidemics comment cycles six to nine years apart most authorities authorities expect the next epidemic could come in the spring of Nineteen seventy-one. Rubella is one of those diseases that we barely remember anymore. But but you're probably familiar with the vaccine. It's the are in the m our vaccine but in nineteen sixty four. There's no vaccine yet and no reliable liable diagnostic test yet. Either doctors are still working on that. There's also no real way to prevent yourself from getting it. And if you wind up having a baby with congenital rubella syndrome. You're on your own. There's no social support of any kind for people with disabilities. An abortion is not legal legal and it won't be for nearly a decade north. Biggs was one of the tens of thousands of women who contracted Rebelo while pregnant in the nineteen sixties. It wasn't during the big epidemic of nineteen sixty four to sixty five but years later in nineteen sixty nine. She had it when she was just two and a half weeks pregnant. But it went undiagnosed announced so it wasn't until after her daughter. Leslie was born that she realized something was wrong. I was walking down the hall and the way the lights lights hit. Leslie's is a thought. Something doesn't look right about her eyes. Cataracts are frequent frequent symptom of congenital. Rubella Syndrome blindness often follows like it did with Leslie I think one of the most difficult halt things for us was that we just kept getting blow after blow after blow because one disability they would show up and then another one would show up in another one would show up. Children born with Congenital Rubella Syndrome. Leslie often have multiple disabilities and the viruses effects on the fetus. Are More severe the earlier. The mother hasn't remember Dorothy had it when she was just two and a half weeks pregnant. Leslie is now fifty years old. She's blind and deaf. She has heart problems and severe intellectual disabilities. Ken Leslie here you know. Can Leslie see you now now. Now how. How do you communicate with your daughter? This is the why it's through touch can Not hearing or seeing. I've often thought you know this is just a dark silent world for her. Dorothy Dorthe Struggles with the idea. That things could've gone differently. I had been Ill before I even knew I was pregnant and went to the doctor and to see what was going. On and I had had a slight rash so I Asked the doctor. Could this rash rebel. He I said when and I'LL BE WE'RE GONNA have rebel. You'd had it in the sixty four sixty five epidemic. He did tell me that he ran a test and In bed it was not rebel. So when Lesley was born and we started Sing disabilities ace at went back to him and he said well. I'm just going to have to be more careful next time. He said I was so sure that that he wasn't I didn't run the tests. It's been suffering life is I see it. And it's it's something that I wish I could have Really known at the early part of the pregnancy because I would never have bled her. Go through all this. I definitely would have chosen abortion to save her from from all she's gone through I. I think it's important for people to now that it's not because you think oh I'm going to have a baby who's disabling. It's going to cause me a lot of trouble. It's more that you just don't want them to have to go through that. It's not you're not wanting when you go there you don't want the child go through it. Maybe you're wondering what Dorothy bigs means. Means when she said she would have gotten an abortion in nineteen sixty nine because we just told you abortion was illegal. Well there's an asterisk a a big asterisk so big in fact that this whole entire story actually takes place within. Rovers Wade won't happen until nineteen seventy-three before then abortion laws in most states had some kind of exemption for medically necessary or so-called therapeutic abortions but each state made up its own rules some were strict in Arizona or Minnesota for example. You could only get an abortion if you were going to die. Other states rules were more vague. I'm in Illinois for example if there had to be a bona fide medical reason but even in the states where therapeutic abortion was legal and the grounds for one were well-defined fine getting one was anything but straightforward it varied between states but also between cities hospitals individual doctors by the mid nineteen sixties. There was already a growing movement. Feminists were pushing to legalize abortion without restriction. But they weren't gaining enough traction to get to row. Oh actually took an epidemic and uneasy alliance with an unlikely group of activists nineteen sixties housewives during the rubella epidemic. Many women men who may have never identified as abortion rights advocates found themselves seeking abortions only to discover that that asterisk was not big enough so they pushed on it. Many of them spoke out and insisted that they were in an impossible position. One that was not only devastating and heartbreaking But completely out of their control and they demanded that they get to be the ones to make tough decisions about their own reproductive lives. They demanded did that. People listen to them and people did eventually because of who these women were but more importantly how they were portrayed bend. The media white middle class responsible married mothers. They changed the national conversation around abortion from something rooted in sexual depravity the endanger to something rooted in the cares and concerns of motherhood does certainly not. Everyone agreed with them. People listened and this historical stoorikhel moment. All sparked by virus paid the way for the legalisation.

"Making it impossible. The case illustrates a blind spot in the debate around abortion if government can compel pregnancy and other cases it it can also compel abortion.

GINSBURG would put it. And it's happening at a time emerging out of a history in which you had four women of color being coerced.

Class given who captain's drug was through the captain's dilemma. GINSBURG was also hoping to strike at another problem. One that hasn't been resolved even a half century century. Later that it's wrong. For the government to act in ways that reflect or reinforce the inferior social status of traditionally excluded groups including women. Whether it could be pregnancy discrimination it can be various forms of sex classifications it can be very restrictions on access to contraception to abortion that they're all part and parcel of a separate spheres regime but also harms women as a group and reinforces their inferior viewers status. We were able to find figures for just how many women in the US Air Force became pregnant from nineteen sixty nine to nineteen seventy-one just over four thousand nine percents of all women in the Air Force discharged for being pregnant but the Supreme Court would never hear the struck case ace.

She's supposed to do how she's supposed to. Respond is to stop working and go home and prepare to become a mother and be supported By her husband who presumably there. And that's exactly what Ginsburg was combatting. It in struck the idea that there's a certain way that a woman is supposed goes to respond to a pregnancy and captain struck was being penalized for refusing to occupy that sort of traditional role. So that's the first points points. I think this would have been a great vehicle to decide. The issue of whether pregnancy discrimination counts potentially is unconstitutional. Sex Discrimination under the equal protection clause now in terms of struck being a first abortion decision instead of Roe Justice Blackmun who writes ro is not thinking about abortion as a sex equality right at all but struck would have been a way for them to see that there are sex equality stakes here that when you regulate pregnant women. These kinds of regulations can be shaped by gender bias and that the impacts on women are going to be substantially greater than the impacts on men and I think the equality stakes are are pretty clear instruct to a court that's capable of seeing it but given the time period and given the composition position of the court. I I wonder whether they would have even been capable struck his now a great grandmother she and her only child Tanya Tanya have a close relationship but it strained she says the choice. She made the decision she was forced to confront has weighed on them both in other time she she would ask me she would say why did you give me away and I didn't give you away. I gave you two. Did that help her. Yes it did after you know L.. After repeating it many times it did have dried saying. I wish it could have been different. I I wish I could have had you One of my regrets but she says things are the way they are because they are the way they are and that's all there is to it. Yeah it's okay Daniel. That makes a lot of sense as for her her career. She told us that suffered to even after her. Discharge ordeal was over the records from it were never removed from her air force file. She says struck was turned down for promotions emotions. For years. Stalled at the rank of captain so I raised new health. She retired as a lieutenant. Colonel but who knows how far she might have gotten another. What if as much as her ordeal illustrates the real human costs of gender discrimination? It also says a lot about the contours of the National National Discussion about abortion and where the politics of ended up today struck supports president trump. Although she says she doesn't identify with either party she gets her news from sources like Fox News. One America News Network and Newsmax. She's concerned about immigration and was involved in the tea party and like so many Americans. She has is complicated views on abortion as a Catholic. I'm supposed to be against abortion in any way shape or form. I'm not like when I was thinking about having an abortion abortion. It was like when I was one to two months. Pregnant in there wasn't any viability of the fetus period. And it would have just been you know. Just a clump themselves. She doesn't oppose abortion. If a woman's life is threatened by the pregnancy. Or if the fetus is badly deformed unviable polls show most Americans hold that view too but like fifty five percent of respondents. She doesn't want federal tax payer money to pay for it in fact she doesn't want the federal government involved at all in being a AH fiscal conservative. I believe it should be up to the states. And of course that was exactly the state of affairs before Roe v Wade was settled a patchwork of restrictions and regulations on abortion rights just as those adopted by the military. President Trump often repeats the myth that doctors perform abortions at nine months. Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother's warm moments from birth. These are living feeling beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their loving their dreams in the world. You know it's just it just kills my soul and this idea of allowing abortions up until the ninth month and then in leading the baby die when it's viable baby to me is it's something out of a horror movie to me. Of course neither either political party promotes infanticide and no state allows a fetus to be aborted in the ninth month unless the woman's life is threatened or if the fetus isn't viable both conditions under which struck supports abortion access. Duke Law School professor. Neil Siegel has written that. The struck case from an era past has lessons for our present debate. There's an an awfully good chance. At an increasingly traditionalist. Conservative Supreme Court is going to view. Various instances of pregnancy. Discrimination is not sex discrimination and if that's right then I think the story of struck and Ginsberg's working struck and Captain Susan Struck when my view deserves to be honored by collective memory emory. They can all serve as a reminder of the legal vulnerabilities and the real human costs of the path that the Supreme Court may very well take back and as long as the Republican doors. It's never over. We're not at the end of history. This is not the Supreme Court we're GonNa have in twenty or thirty years. Maybe not even in ten years now struck in the process of writing a book is becoming the author of her own story as she sees it. Her crusade was aimed at a much narrower target than the one seen by legal scholars wasn't about abortion was discreet step on the path toward equality. Today women no longer have to choose as between Motherhood in the military you know. It's it's something that was very monumental for the military that had to happen and it happened. Happened with me in the seventies and women should forget it because there isn't any reason why you shouldn't fight more for one and women have been doing that. Since our first woman general was in general the same year that McCain Does Subtle and tells me some you nearly fifty years later. They're still a long way to go for all women. The pregnant workers fairness act hasn't passed congress the US maternal mortality rate has actually been going up up and despite Supreme Court rulings access to abortion is more endangered than ever so coming up we look beyond Roe versus Wade to reproductive justice This is on the media. I'm Jessica Glenda of the Guardian and I'm OTM producer. Alana Casanova Burgess so instead of the equality arguments minced. We got row planted in a slate cellular quick described the shakier and more conservative ground of a women's private relationship with her doctor So what are we facing. Now she says there are two kinds of attacks on row. One is the use of trap laws or targeted regulation of abortion providers. She thinks the Conservatives on the court I have a preference for chipping away at access rather than an outright ban presumably by that theory they will never write the sentence Roe v Wade is now overturned.

"Was half expecting you to get off the plane with your baby and it said you have no idea how close section but there would have been too much a fighter would never work. My object was it. I was going to stay on active duty and also have something something to do with changing the rules. Struck got a total of seven discharges from the Air Force. Most coming long after her daughter had been born. She thinks it's a record captain. Susan's truck was scheduled to be discharged in the army midnight tonight. Sushi had a child while in service that's against regulations but today Miss Struck Walker. She's not married. Got An order in court justice. Douglas preventing her discharged until the issue is thrashed out. He put her infant daughter up for adoption last summer. But the air force still sought to have our discharge under existing regulations today the ninth. US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco rejected Captain Instructs Plea and concluded that unquote there is a compelling public interest in not having pregnant female soldiers in the military establish. Susan struck is an unmarried captain in the Air Force. who had a baby in nineteen seventy? She's a Roman Catholic who would not have an abortion. The baby has been given up for adoption. The air force wanted her discharge but she got a court todor keeping her in the service until a court could rule on the constitutionality of the air. Force's action today. The Supreme Court said it would rule on miss trucks case curly next year among struck attorneys was Ruth Bader Ginsburg than at the. ACLU's women's rights project. This is from GINSBURG's confirmation information testimony in nineteen ninety-three because no man was ordered out of service because he had been the partner in the conception. No Man was ordered out of service because he was about to become a father. Strikes case happened in nineteen seventy essentially the beginning of the Gender Equality Movement in nineteen seventy one. The High Court had decided the equal protection clause applied to women too but they could still be fired for getting pregnant. Meanwhile GINSBURG was set to argue the case the same term as Roe versus Wade one of the problems in thinking about row today is that it was never planted in the firmest possible soil and then it became became easier to take wax at Dahlia liquid covers the courts for sleet and hosts the amicus. Podcast we forget through the rear view mirror. That Roe was was not actually rooted in a mother's bodily autonomy or dignity. When you go back and you read the row opinion Justice Blackmun Ackman? He had been council at the Mayo Clinic. He was obsessed with the doctors writes in that case. In fact as the New Yorker noted a few years ago Justice Blackman's decision has forty eight references to physicians and only forty four to women by locating the rate somewhere in that conversation or relationship between a woman and in her doctor again. Always a man in justice. Blackman's construction you really did privilege the physician if not over the woman at least on equal footing meeting with the mother it was simply. That's what the court understood. Was that these wise judicious man would be helping. Women make good decisions about what was best for them but but it aligns the central moral agent here which is the woman and because of that I think it set row up to be a more teetering than it needed to be. It was not planted in the soil of women's dignity women's economic equality women's autonomy. And no less. That's the person than Ruth. Bader GINSBURG has in the years since row actually deplored that in row the justices rooted the right to an abortion in terms. It already recognized privacy liberty. A woman should be free to make this private decision with her doctor and the government shouldn't get involved although they also split the right into trimesters prime ministers with more leeway for government regulation further into the pregnancy. Ginsburg made the privacy argument INSTRUC- too but she rested at primarily unequality quality grounds. And she has said that. This is the case that got her to think in those terms. The one thing that distinguishes women from men is that only eight women become pregnant. And if you're going to subject a woman to disadvantageous treatment on the basis of her pregnant status. which was what was happening here? You were going to deny her equal treatment under the law Senator Hank Brown a Colorado Republican asked Ginsburg about it directly. I can see how the equal protection -tection argument would apply to a policy that the interfered with her plan to bear the child could that argument the applied for someone who wish to Have the option of an abortion is well. Does it apply both decision to not have an abortion as well as to a decision to have an abortion. The argument was it's her right to decide. Either way her right to decide whether or not to bear a child in this case it was her choice for childbirth. The government was inhibiting that choice. It was the price of remaining in the service. The military policy toward abortion at the time was both more permissive and more coercive then civilian policy this pre row where abortion was illegal in most circumstances around the country. Duke law professor. Neil Siegel clerked for Ginsburg in two thousand three. She declined to speak with us for this story but Seagal has interviewed reviewed her about the struck case. This is the quote I would love to have it known that during the Nixon administration armed forces basis offering abortions to women in the service the dependence of Mendon service in fact in July of that year nineteen seventy the Department of Defense issued a formal policy on abortion. It was the first we were able to find mentioning it explicitly abortions were to be permitted at military base hospitals even in states where it was illegal. That's the permissive part of it and also more coercive if if you want to keep your job in the military then you have to terminate the pregnancy. Even if that was in secret in Japan struck says she was never offered an abortion by the air force but she and other women knew. The option was implied in her brief. On the case Ginsburg also emphasized strucks Catholic faith other servicewomen. Were more free to make that choice than the captain was and Struck said that she would take her vacation time to recover from the pregnancy way less than what men got to recover from. All kinds of ailments could be a broken leg could also be drug addiction. Alcohol Abuse There was no automatic discharge for any of that in so pregnancy. Unlike other disabilities was grounds for immediate media discharge regardless of individual circumstances and mothers fathers were deemed unfit to serve and so this was to be a counter intuitive abortion rights case in which a white middle-class woman with an exemplary professional record was choosing birth in the Air Force's forces policy was.

I had to take the course that I did and I don't regret it as mothers. They demanded they should be the ones to make tough decisions about their own. Reproductive lives demand of people. Listen and eventually grudgingly people did. It's not what most of us think of as the Movement for abortion rights because it's not it's not Grounded in sexual freedom. It's really about family family and children and it is. It's grounded in motherhood.

"They have almost absolute the justices have almost absolute discretion as to which cases and, which legal issues. They address on what timeframe. Or whether they ever dress, certain legal issues. And Secondly, they. Contrary to the assumptions of some state legislatures legislators they don't need a prohibition of any kind to reexamine Roe versus Wade. They can reexamine row in any case with an abortion law, that arguably conflicts with Roe, and they did that in Webster, Missouri law with no prohibitions, and they did that in Casey Pennsylvania law with no prohibitions. And as I wrote in national review online last week or two weeks ago with the title of the heartbeat bills may be the least likely to attract supreme court review, frankly, I think it's unlikely that the court will take up first trimester prohibitions. It's more likely that they I mean, to just be very, very simple. It simply cases are, are, are easier than hard cases. And it's it's easier to take up cases without first trimester prohibitions than cases with first trimester prohibitions. And, and the last thing is there's a lot of opportunity because there are twenty thirty cases in the lower courts or at the court now that the court can address it, well, it's time for closing arguments in is absolutely fascinating discussion and Catherine. The first one is to you what would the world? Look like if ROY v. Wade were overturned. Well, I unlike Clark believed that many state legislatures not just ten would move to restrict access to abortion, primarily in the middle of the country in the southern part of the country, and I don't think any of those state legislators are reflecting popular opinion. Like he has proposed that is seventy one percent of Americans today. Believe that the law auto remain. What it is that row ought not be overturned. There's only about twenty six percent that believe it should be. So if you're talking popular opinion, its support for the current circumstance and state legislators often do things for political reasons that have nothing to do with popular opinion, and frankly, it affects women's lives. So my view on all of this is that people who believe in choice to make their voices heard need to elect pro choice. Legislators both in the Senate. The US Senate and at the state level that states make a major difference elections matter, and that they ought to, you know, in my view be out there canvassing knocking on doors writing postcards, getting involved in electoral politics, to change the status quo, because nothing will happen. Good for women until pro-choice legislatures control circumstance. And frankly, I feel really, really badly for the women who live in states in, which their legislators are not responsible to responsible to their needs. And, you know, Alabama, Mississippi Missouri over and over again have said we don't care what happens to your life. We don't care. What happens to your health? We wanna do this for political reasons. We're gonna pass these onerous laws and I think they'll continue to do, so until the people in those legislators legislators change. Clark last word is to you of what would a world. Look like if Roe v. Wade were returned abortion policy would be better aligned with public opinion in this country..

"In a nineteen Ninety-four interview McCorvey told her reporter. I'm a simple woman with a ninth grade education who wants women not to be harassed or condemned snow glamorous thing to go through an abortion. I never had one, but I've worked in three clinics and I know the anti-choice people all ask me when do I think life begins. I don't know. I'm not a rocket scientist. I just wanted the privilege of clean clinic to get the procedure done. I don't require that much in my life. I just never had the privilege to go into an abortion clinic, lay down and having a Boertien. That's the only thing I never had. So we know the row was Norma. McCorvey. What does the weights and foreign Roe v way that's Henry Wade? He was the district attorney in the county where we're rose trying to obtain abortions. So basically he was the law enforcement official responsible for enforcing the laws. I'm a little confused as to the process by which. Roe versus Wade gets overturned, what is the hypothetical procedure in which that would be overturned? One way that might happen is that there might be some law that is absolutely nearly like getting rid of all abortions in one particular state, right? And so presumably some organization or person would bring a lawsuit, asking a judge to find that law and constitutional now on the other side, the other side, the state's voyeurs might say, actually, you know what? This is an opportunity not just to defend the legality of this draconian law, but we're going to ask the supreme court. We're gonna make a bet here that the time is right to ask the supreme court to say, you know what admit that you've made a mistake that Roe versus Wade should never have been decided in use this case as vehicle. So the court could say not just that this law is constitutional it's consistent with Roe. That's one way to do it, but they could say, you know what? Now that we're looking at this law, it turns out that our legal framework, the way we decided cases was wrong. We've made a mistake and there is no constitutionally protected right to an abortion, and they'll use that cases of Ukel. That's what would happen. And this is what you're going to see presuming the judge Cavanaugh will become just as Cavanaugh if there is a five Justice, conservative majority, solid one. Now, the Justice Kennedy is gone. You know, we're just talking about one legal area, but there are a number of legally is where different kinds of legal challenges will be raised because people who care passionately about these areas of law will feel at the time is right to bring a challenge. So there's kind of two ways in which the effectiveness of the decision of Roe v Wade is undermined. One is the supreme court holds Rovers as weight as president, but then when things come up that challenge it, they think, oh, this doesn't really violate the decision we made in nineteen seventy three. And so that's one way. Then you just kind of a road a lot of the rights from that way. And the other way is to bring some case. And then some very bold lawyer goes, you know what? We want you to take a look at that decision and then overturn it directly. Then roving Wade doesn't exist as a concept. And so you know, in theory, this thing that we the law professors talked about is we live in the system of starry decisive star. Decisive simply means that you know courts refer to prior precedents rely upon them. So we don't just overturn cases for no reason whatsoever. And the court is going to be acutely aware that anytime it has to reverse course and overturn a case, it's not supposed to do so lightly. It's gotta say that there's some really good reason to do that. Having said that the court does reverse itself from time to time. It's not an unheard of thing. So what would happen? What would a five person majority say about row simply that it was always wrong from the moment we decided it something's changed. That would be hard to say, but there is the sense of institutional legitimacy that the court and that have minimum chief Justice Roberts would certainly be aware of because let's say in this pathetic world that a five Justice majority overturns Roe versus Wade..
