    The unspeakable has finally come to pass: The Supreme Court has ruled, in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson, to overturn Roe v. Wade and roll back abortion rights across the U.S. For the first time, the Court has taken away a fundamental right that so many depend on. This unprecedented assault on bodily autonomy will unleash significant harms across the country — particularly for those most marginalized, including poor women and girls, women of color, LGBTQ people and disabled people. It also raises fundamental questions when it comes to the dismantling of privacy protections — the opinion calls into question other fundamental rights decided by the court including the right to birth control, same sex marriage, and more. How can this decision be justified in light of glaring rates of maternal mortality and mortality? How can we move forward and secure the rights of those most impacted by this devastating ruling? And how can we center those most vulnerable among us, and ensure they're included in the promise of our constitution? In this episode, "On The Issues" host Dr. Michele Goodwin speaks directly to our audience, unpacking the Dobbs decision and what comes next. Support the show

    In the final Pride month special episode, Bryan and Christina talk with Slate senior writer Mark Joseph Stern. They assess what the Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health, the case that swept away Roe v. Wade, might mean for LGBTQ rights. Should we be worried about marriage equality? Given Americans' purported love of privacy, is there any way that the right to same-sex intimacy, protected in Lawrence v. Texas, might now come under attack? Mark helps the hosts find hope, slim though it might be, amid the cruelty of the Dobbs decision. Items discussed in the show: The episode of Amicus in which Dahlia Lithwick and guests discussed Dobbs (and Bruen). Season 7 of Slow Burn, about Roe v.

    Lately, the news has been pretty bleak: losing our reproductive rights, seeing just how close we came to losing our democracy on January 6… there haven't been a lot of reasons for hope. But this episode we're changing that, because we're talking to four incredible young LGBTQ activists. As our panel moderator Jess McIntosh says, advocacy is a relay race - and these young people are already running with the baton. And if teenagers can put together marches or speak at school board meetings, how much more could we all be doing?But before we get to our youth panel, hosts Rachel Vindman, Jasmine Clark, and Amanda Weinstein discuss how they're feeling about the Roe news a few days later. They chat about how the Republican Party seems to be backpedaling because they're realizing that overturning Roe is widely unpopular. But they aren't going to stop trying to take away our rights, from abortion to gay marriage, so we need to keep having these conversations and organizing.Finally, our hosts raise a glass to their kids, to a little alone time, and to being in the right place at the right time in this week's “Toast to Joy.”You can visit go.redwine.blue/roepod to get more information about how to stand up for reproductive rights.

    The ways in which abortion is often publicly debated can result in the harmful depiction of the experience of ending a pregnancy in overly simplistic terms. Rev. Katey Zeh, CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and Author of A Complicated Choice: Making Space for Grief and Healing in the Pro-Choice Movement, talks to us about her new book, the myths and stigma that people must wade through when getting an abortion, and the vast amount of feelings and experiences many people may have when accessing care. A Complicated Choice chronicles the complicated feelings that people have around their abortion experiences. Overall, the book highlights how people can make decisions surrounding abortion and have a lot of nuanced, complex feelings around it—but that doesn't mean that it wasn't the right decision. In addition, many people experience internalized abortion stigma, due to far-reaching myths and rhetoric spread by those who are anti-abortion. This stigma can often display itself as a sense of isolation in one's experience. White Christian nationalism intertwines greatly with the stigmatization of and logistical attacks against abortion. Steeped in racism, sexism, classism, and Christian nationalism, these abortion attacks disproportionately harm Black people, Indigenous people, other people of color, the LGBTQ+ community young people, etc.   Find Reverend Katey Zeh's book at your local bookstore or on bookshop.org LinksA Complicated Choice by Katey ZehKatey Zeh on TwitterReligious Coalition for Reproductive Choice on TwitterReligious Coalition for Reproductive Choice on FacebookThe Kindreds PodcastINeedAnA.comAbortion Fund Donation FinderAbortionsWelcome.orgReligion and Repro Learning Center Take Action Follow the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice on Twitter and Facebook! Support your local abortion fund.

    We learned that commenting on the pace of a game in progress is as bad as saying “no-hitter” in the midst of one, and get called “Karen” for noting that a combined no-no is different from a no-no. We launch into the SCOTUS rant that you knew was coming, but don't worry, we deftly tie it to baseball and provide a checklist of specific actions including standing up AND sitting down, and being like Lauren. Pottymouth loses another boyfriend due to character flaws, we get a “Let's Go, Jeter” chant at Fenway that we can get behind, and Patti remains stuck with Adley's mustache because you don't mess with a streak. Hell has frozen over as we agree with Buck over Dusty. Pottymouth proposes a qHar bracket. We introduce you to Proud to be in Baseball, founded by Bryan Ruby, which supports LGBTQ+ ballplayers in high school, college, and beyond. Rainbows appear in LMB (the Mexican baseball league) and we learn non gendered vocabulary words in Spanish! The Venezuelan Women's baseball semi-finals concluded this weekend, with Pottymouth noting 3 women umpires, and the ability to watch games on YouTube. Patti shares the joy of the pressbox during collegiate summer league games. We say “Super spreader bat mitzvah,” “Even the mustard is gay,” and by popular demand, “Anzoátegui.”Get boosted, fight the man, send your game balls to Meredith,  and find us on Twitter @ncibpodcast, on Facebook @nocryinginbball, Instagram @nocryinginbball and on the Interweb at nocryinginbball.com.

    My friend Michael Finch bravely shares his story. Michael talks about realizing at BYU that he is gay before his mission, resulting in feelings of “my life is over”. At that time, Michael ignored this realization, and he served a successful mission in New York City speaking Mandarin Chinese. Michael talks about returning home and trying to move forward with his life including coming out as gay (positive experience). However, suicidal ideation (which has been part of Michael's story since before his mission) continued until Michael's suicide attempt in March 2021. Michael bravely shares more about that experience, what he has learned and why he decided to openly share about his suicide attempt to help others. A year after his suicide attempt, Michael made this Instagram post in March 2022 (www.instagram.com/p/CbgRYONvJMEG2Y9pKxDA2u7r272D-WqoTy-EZk0/).

    Consider the Hag. Will You? Most of us cringe at the mention of her.  We would just as soon keep her banished to the deep woods.  Who can blame us?   She is rot, she is ugly, she does not follow our rules. She has one foot on the other side; death. The Hag embodies suffering, a weathering by life; she stands for oldness. She is not who we want to become. But…Marianne Franzese sees things differently.   She challenges us to re-consider.  Marianne suggests that we could go deep into the woods of our own being to find the cast-off hag. Perhaps, says Marianne, our hag offers strength and power.  She could be a container for our outrage, the keeper of the fires of social justice. She could be our biggest liberation. Marianne says that culturally the Hag has been feared by the patriarchy and therefore demonized, degraded, and diminished to the one-dimensional. According to Marianne, the Hag is as individual as each of us. She just needs to be reimagined and reclaimed. It's a big plot twist.  But given the overturning of Roe vs Wade and the impingement on the rights of LGBTQ+ and all marginalized groups, we may need a big twist.  Marianne asks us to consider “a very personal call to break out the extreme push for older women to maintain a certain level of beauty, grace and quietness.”  Perhaps some of us are called to something different. Listen to this podcast as Marianne discusses her reasons and plans to bring the Hag out of the woods and into our psyches as older women.   Reach out to Marianne at mfranzese333@gmail.com if you want to learn more about her Hag Project.
