FEATURING IMANI GANDY – Among the terrifying things that Donald Trump’s electoral college victory has unleashed is any sense of propriety that the anti-abortion politicians had. In Texas in particular, state legislators have pre-filed a whopping 600 bills eroding women’s right to reproductive healthcare. Some of those bills propose banning what is already prohibited at the federal level, suggesting that there is a level of political posturing at work. And, among the bills is a ghastly requirement for fetal tissue to be given a funeral.

Nationally, Trump is considering GOP Representative Tom Price of Georgia for the position of Secretary of Health and Human Services. Price has a singularly consistent record of voting against federal support for women’s reproductive services.
