We Need Inslee

May 27, 2019

You have probably never heard of him. Mainstream news sources are ignoring him in favor of Buttigieg or Biden, liberal sources are focused on Bernie and Warren, and let’s be real, not many at Hotchkiss are reading Democracy Now! or The Nation. That and few people outside of the Pacific Northwest would know of him anyway.

A Common Misconception About the Pro-Choice Stance

May 27, 2019

On May 15, Alabama lawmakers passed a law that prohibits abortions in the state at every stage of pregnancy. It includes exceptions for women whose health is at serious risk, but does not include exceptions for victims of rape or incest. In line with the current holding in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which ruled that the government can regulate abortion as long as it does not place an “undue burden” on a woman, the Alabama law would punish doctors, not patients. Doctors would be sentenced to up to 99 years in prison for performing an abortion, which in many cases is more years than a rapist would serve.
