Backtalk: The Devil Works Hard But Anti-Abortion Politicians Work Harder

This week, Dahlia and Amy discuss the recent passage of the most severe abortion ban in Alabama and what this could mean for Roe v. Wade and abortion access across the country. Anti-abortion politicians continue to argue for the sanctity of life and the personhood of a fetus while ignoring the humanity of the person who would have to carry the fetus to term—even if their pregnancy was a result of rape or incest. The devil works hard, but anti-abortion politicians work harder. And in Amy vs. Dahlia, who are both in the midst of moving across the country, we want to know what you think is the worst part about packing up and moving.
