Professor, Tracy Weitz, explained the state level assault on Abortion rights, the connection between anti abortion activism and elite economic policies, what really motivates the fight against abortion rights, and grounding abortion rights in broader progressive politics.

On The Better Half: Virginia Republicans use the inauguration day to make a stunningly cynical voter disenfranchisement bill law, what the Republican retreat on the debt ceiling means, and Random Rush.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
