Interview with Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL, Pro-Choice America, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
During last November's congressional campaign, the issue of abortion was barely raised, and GOP conservative candidates ran mostly on economic issues, calling for jobs and balancing the budget. Now that the new Congress has been seated, pro-choice groups are counting a majority of anti-choice legislators in both the House and Senate. On the 38th anniversary of the landmark Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion, pro-choice groups are dismayed. Story continues
Interview with Ira Kurzban, attorney representing exiled Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, conducted by Scott Harris
The return of ex-Haitian dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier to Port-Au-Prince on Jan. 16 caught his nation by surprise as most Haitians still struggle to recover from last year's devastating earthquake and deal with a disputed presidential election. The former "president-for-life" ruled Haiti from 1971, beginning at the age of 19, until he was driven from power and into exile after a popular revolt in 1986. Both Jean-Claude and his father, Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier who had led Haiti since 1957, have been accused of committing gross human rights violations and looting the impoverished nation's meager treasury.

Interview with Bob Edgar, president of Common Cause, conducted by Scott Harris
Jan. 21 was the first anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission case that, by a 5 to 4 decision, ushered in an era of unlimited and unaccountable spending by corporations and labor unions in U.S. election campaigns. The court upheld the doctrine that money is equivalent to speech protected under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. As a result of this ruling, campaign spending in the 2010 congressional mid-term election increased by 330 percent over funds spent in 2006. Story continues
