6/30 Ian Millhiser & Katie Klabusich: SCOTUS Attacks Women & Workers

June 30, 2014

Think Progress Justice Editor Ian Millhiser explains what was at stake in the Harris v Quinn decision, how the right wing majority attacked healthcare workers, how the right is “weaponizing” the first amendment, how the Court can do more to destroy unions in the future and the radical departure from precedent in the Hobby Lobby decision.

Writer and activist Katie Klabusich explains how the Hobby Lobby decision will undermine women’s health and rights, the shocking misogyny of the Roberts Court and the buffer decision and harassment of women at reproductive clinics.

On The Fun half: Rick Santorum thinks maybe the founders were right to restrict the right to vote, Facebook experiments on its users, Blackwater threatens to murder a State Department investigator and your calls and IMs.
