The Spiritual War on the Uterus in Rick Perry’s Texas and Beyond

Lisa Loving hosts a discussion of the "Spiritual War on the Uterus in Rick Perry’s Texas." She'll speak with journalist Sarah Posner about the religious crusade against abortion in the Lone Star State. Posner details the shift in religious efforts against abortion in Texas, away from a national push led by major evangelicals towards a more local, militant strategy. While abortion hasn't played a central role in the presidential campaign, that, too, is a product of the shift in strategy: anti-choice activists are focused not on overturning Roe v. Wade (although that remains a crucial goal).

What is Welfare?

program date: 
Mon, 11/21/2011

Host Denise Morris talks with Johnanna Brenner about welfare -- its history and meaning.  Is welfare something to be demeaned, as it is when we call the subsidies and tax breaks for corporations "welfare for the rich"? Doesn't that play into the right-wing idea that welfare is for people who won't work?  Isn't welfare really about faring well, doing well, and being well -- something we all need and need to receive from others?
