On this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we present two interview, the first with our legal correspondent who breaks down the recent Supreme Court leak from Politico, what it means, and its broader implications. We talk about the increasing push towards criminalization, how an overturning of Roe V Wade could play out in the courts, and how various states doubling down on protecting or outlawing reproductive rights could possibly impact the wider terrain.
The fight for free and accessible abortions has always required solidarity, risk, and cunning. To keep reproductive justice alive, we must fight beyond the law, in contravention of certain laws, or in post-Roe legal gray areas, writes @natashalennard. https://t.co/zHAXwEUuKM

We then speak with author, educator, and journalist Natasha Lennard, an investigative reporter at the Intercept, who speaks about her recent piece entitled, The End of Roe: Saving Abortion Rights Means Taking Them Into Our Own Hands. During our discussion we also touch on the poverty of liberalism, the inability of the Democratic Party to do anything but contain people’s anger and push people to vote, and the need to both mobilize in the streets and also organize on the ground; expanding and strengthening existing mutual aid networks, community health initiatives, and grassroots support projects.
