#504 Impact of Covid-19

Abortion As predicted, sidewalk advocates outside abortion facilities are reporting an upsurge in women entering. But there’s good news: Planned Parenthood, which owns over half of U.S. abortion centers, has made itself a little less available. News reports and Planned Parenthood announce that 11 PP centers in Illinois will be temporarily closed for several weeks, “consolidating” into a list of six. In New York, PP had an obscure notice saying 6 centers would be closing March 20 or 21. To show they weren’t just closed for the day, the listings for those centers have disappeared from PP’s New York list of centers. Along with 6 others. A total of 12 have disappeared, so a l

#503 Covid-19 Impact

We’ve thought of two so far, but it would be a stronger page with more – and besides, haven’t you had an idea kicking around in the back of your head that you’d like to

#501 Kill it!, Supreme Court, Mr. Rogers

“Kill it!” In the last Democratic presidential candidate debate, Elizabeth Warren took information from a 1997 lawsuit to say that Michael Bloomberg, as a company boss, said to a pregnant employee: “Kill it!” He denies saying this, but Elizabeth pressed him hard. In a later interview, she said she believed the woman. This was an accusation.
