Florida Abortion Rights in Retrograde w. Rep. Barbara Lee

Florida’s Supreme Court enacted a six-week abortion ban — but there’s a chance to protect reproductive rights in the Sunshine State in November; the NCAA women’s basketball championships are RIVETING; and, Dr. Heather Irobunda joins to discuss an announcement from the Department of Health and Human Services regarding consent for “sensitive” procedures like pelvis and prostate exams. Then, Rep. Barbara Lee comes on to talk about her history of fighting for progressive policy, 2024 voter turnout, and being portrayed on TV in Netflix’s “Shirley.” Finally, Sani-Petty (Mercury is in retrograde again).
