1/22 Tracy Weitz: Roe V Wade At 40 & Inauguration Reactions

January 22, 2013

Sam’s responded to Obama’s second inaugural, praised the President’s strong rhetorical defense of the social safety net and his aggressive approach on Gay rights and climate change and thought the country will be better if Obama lives up to his rhetoric.

Professor, Tracy Weitz, explained the state level assault on Abortion rights, the connection between anti abortion activism and elite economic policies, what really motivates the fight against abortion rights, and grounding abortion rights in broader progressive politics.

On The Better Half: Virginia Republicans use the inauguration day to make a stunningly cynical voter disenfranchisement bill law, what the Republican retreat on the debt ceiling means, and Random Rush.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
