Amanda Marcotte on Twitter
Why did Texas police search a school with helicopters after a girl miscarried in the bathroom? In the national panic over abortion, women seeking routine medical care can be treated as suspects.  We talk with blogger and women's health reporter Amanda Marcotte. Amanda is author of It's a Jungle Out There: The Feminist Survival Guide to Politically Inhospitable Environments and contributor to Rh Reality Check. Her article, The Aftermath of ‘Hobby Lobby': Multiple Attacks on Contraception Access appears there.
