RH Reality Check: Framing Reproductive Rights from RH Reality Check on Vimeo.

This is a fun one, where I debunk some of the favorite terms used by right wing nuts to discredit supporters of reproductive rights, doctors who provide abortion, and general human beings with common sense. I have particular hatred for “post-abortion syndrome”, which is something anti-choicers made up to justify their paternalistic view that women who get abortions are just too stupid to know what they’re doing.

Marc is back to play Clint Donovan, but we’re bringing back Diana Gerson as Faye Winters and Faizan Subhani as Max Holder in future editions. Picking your wingnut name is actually more fun than picking your porn star name, and I’m vaguely sad that I don’t get to play along. I think I’d like Bridget LePay.
