Just when you thought is was over, the War on Women returns.

There's one thing we can all set our clocks by -- somewhere, there's a conservative who's really bent that there are women out there having unauthorized sex. State legislators in Michigan, Virginia, Alabama, and Indiana have all recently introduced legislation restricting reproductive rights.

Is this really about protecting the fetus, or is it about controlling women, their bodies, and their sexuality? Or both? Abe and Joe examine this question and take listener phone calls.

David Weiman on Mass Incarceration

program date: 
Mon, 02/25/2013

Bill Resnick talks with economist David Weiman about the political forces encouraging the growth and maintaining of prisons and punitive policing in the USA. They consider not only media influence and legislators desire to keep jobs in their areas but also the fear-enhancing effects of social isolation and division and the correlation between inequality and incarceration. They discuss the impact of widely available guns and lobbying in support of gun rights. They consider the role of mental health professionals, the use of psychoactive drugs, and the likelihood that mental illness is a consequence of incarceration rather than a cause of crime.
