We have a conversation with Professor Michele Gilman How the Supreme Court limiting abortion access could harm the economy and women’s well-being
We discuss the recent leaked potential ruling of the Supreme Court, and how this will affect the economy overall. This ruling is apparently only the beginning of other rulings, that will rescind various rights, including the right to marry across race lines, contraception, gay rights. We see that this is aimed at controlling women, keeping them ‘pregnant and in the kitchen”.
