Discriminatory Sentencing of Pregnant Women Defies Understanding

Kylee Sunderlin of National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW) joined me this week to talk about "enhanced sentencing" for a woman convicted of committing a crime while pregnant. This is in direct violation of the defendant's civil rights. NAPW is on the case, and filed an amicus brief in this woman's defense.

False Witnesses Bring True Propaganda

Sharona Coutts, VP of Investigations and Research at RHRealityCheck, joined me to discuss false and misleading legislative and judicial testimony used by social conservative states' attorneys general and legislators to defend antichoice bills and laws. Much of this false and misleading information comes from a small group of propagandists Sharona aptly refers to as the false witnesses. The most notable of these false witnesses being Vincent Rue whose testimony has been dismissed from court as "personally biased and lacking expertise." 

These false witnesses have been repeating the same untrue information for decades and hold beliefs opposite of the APA, ACOG, AMA, and most other people with brains.
