Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl
A treaty or law not honored by the United States? It's more likely than you think!

SB8: Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson
In this emergency episode, the hosts discuss Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson, the case where the Supreme Court declined to stay SB8. SB8 is the monstrous Texas law that allows anyone to sue anyone who even intends to help someone get an abortion after 6 weeks of pregnancy. The effect is that while very early term abortions are still legal in Texas, private individuals have been deputized to bounty hunt abortion providers, activists, and even Uber drivers.To help Texas women receive abortion care you can donate to this ActBlue fund, which splits the resources across several Texas-based abortion funds.Go to needabortion.org to give funds or get access to care.To find your local abortion fund, visit abortionfunds.org.To join the Center for Reproductive Rights Lawyers' Network, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
