With Ohio now banning abortions after 6 weeks we dive, yet again, into the abyss of pro-life versus pro-choice and how many states are now using 6 weeks as a benchmark. We end with a quick discussion about New York City, anti-vaxxers and the measles.

We start with Amanda asking Chad for some family advice. Then we dive into what happens when the people you love are exposed to way too much conservative media. We also lightly touch on how the Christian right is trying to change America into a theocracy through carefully worded laws. We end with nun on nun sexual abuse.

We have a couple stories out of Indiana again. The bigger stories we talk about though are about a Catholic university banning online porn on campus and one woman’s desire to make leggings go away. I was surprised at how long we were actually able to talk about this.
