Your Rights Are Not Set In Mifepristone
Listen now
A federal appeals court ruled yesterday that it would impose restrictions on the abortion pill mifepristone, including preventing it from being prescribed via telehealth or sent through the mail. But those restrictions won’t go into effect immediately due to a previous stay by the Supreme Court.

We’re joined by Jacob Love, a staff attorney with Lawyers for Civil Rights, to talk about the migrants' experience, specifically those who were flown to Martha's Vineyard by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. And in headlines: prosecutors in Georgia want their racketeering case against Trump to start as soon as March 4th, the death toll from the deadly Maui wildfires rose to 110, and dozens of protestors in Miami took to the streets Wednesday to protest the state’s new restrictions on how Black history can be taught in public schools.
