Written by Tom Walker on Sunday, June 13, 2021
First we’ll hear the latest state news from Jim Saunders of the News Service of Florida.
Then our first guests will be Amy Weintraub of Progress Florida and Stephanie Fraim, Amy is the Program Director for the Progress Florida Reproductive Rights Program. Stephanie is President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida. We’ll talk about the recent proposals by Manatee County Commissioner James Satcher seeking to limit abortions in Manatee County.
“We are seeing the effort pop up around Florida, and they are coming from out of state,” Amy Weintraub said. “There has been a very similar campaign in the State of Texas, and the leader of that campaign is evangelizing his message now in other places, and Florida is one of his targets.”
Our second guest will be David Masciotra. He’ll talk about his book I Am Somebody: Why Jessie Jackson Matters. He also recently interviewed Noam Chomsky.
