Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

House Passes Bill that Denies Women Emergency Abortion Services

Interview with Sarah Lipton-Lubet, policy counsel, American Civil Liberties Union, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

abortion

The U.S. House of Representatives just passed another in a series of anti-abortion bills that has been characterized by women's and civil liberties groups as one of the most extreme yet from the Republican-controlled body. The measure would allow hospitals to deny life-saving care to women in need of emergency abortion services. It would also deny women insurance coverage for abortion services under the new health care system, taking away insurance coverage that millions of women already have. According to the American Journal of Public Health, Catholic hospitals already have a history of ignoring their obligation to provide emergency care that may involve performing abortions. In 1979, an Arizona bishop excommunicated a nun who authorized an abortion procedure for a woman who otherwise might have died of pulmonary hypertension at a Catholic hospital in Phoenix.  Story continues

Growing public support for the Occupy Wall Street protest movement speaks to the long-simmering anger and frustration with the failures of the current economic system and the lack of accountability for the bankers and financiers whose reckless behavior plunged the U.S. and world economy into the Great Recession. In the U.S., recent polls find majority support for the protesters’ central message condemning corporate greed and the corrupt political system rigged in favor of the interests of America’s wealthiest 1 percent.  Story continues
