on why reproductive rights matter

"Let's be completely clear about the facts here. There is no place in the world and no time in history where restricting women's reproductive rights makes a people or a nation more free or more equal. These extreme positions on abortion are without question a war on American girls and women." -Melissa Harris Lacewell

A video of her eloquent comments on the topic are linked in a video on Jezebel.
