Why Do We Criminalize Pregnant Women?
11 plays

morningamp:

I think that the root of this [criminalizing pregnant women] is tied back to the pro-life movement and trying to give fertilized eggs, embryos, fetuses, certain ‘inalienable rights’ which by their very existence alienate the mother, and put the mother at risk of harm and prosecution.”
- Cassandra Gaddo from the Council of Feminist Thought

Mixing it up on the Council are Cassandra Gaddo from Step Up Women’s Network and comedian Liza Treyger. One #FemWed topic that was discussed was the criminalization of pregnant women for drug use. Along with AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams, they analyzed points on whether or not the root for this falls from the abortion controversy and what protective rights women may or may not have have in certain pro-life states.

Let's Get Real: Is Colorblind Ideology a form of Racism?

morningamp:

The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams (along with a few callers) kicked off the show with some real table talk! Stephen Colbert satirizes white liberalism by saying he “can’t be racist because I don’t see color.” But psychologists say colorblindness has similar effects to racist beliefs: it keeps the “colorblind” person from recognizing and more importantly, valuing, individual difference.

CNN Chicagoland: How one High School Principal is Sharing her School's Reality

morningamp:

I think my main reason for wanting to do it [CNN Chicagoland documentary] was to create awareness, but not just for Fenger- I think Fenger is just a small microcosm of what happens on a larger scale of not only in Chicago but across this country. And so there are phenomenal educators and principles across the country who are doing work under extraordinary circumstances that don’t really get highlighted, where people don’t understand the complexity of the work, so that was really important for me and why I really wanted to do it. And then the second reason was to help raise funds. You know, it’s public education…and how things are funded; it’s complicated. “

- Fenger High School Principal Liz Dozier on why she decided to feature her school on CNN’s documentary “Chicagoland”

Liz Dozier, principal of Fenger High School, joined the AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to talk about her starring turn on CNN’s Chicagoland and what her day to day is like when she’s not on national TV. We’ve also been talking about guns following yesterday’s shooting at Fort Hood so we’ll look at the ways daily violence affects out lives.

Safe Passage and Other Social Programs Discussed with Dr. Coya Paz

morningamp:

"I would argue that the system is working as it is intended to work, does it serve communities that we all care about? No, but is it "working"? Sure. […]Some people can work any system, but if a system is set up so that a significant portion of people will not succeed in it, then those people will not succeed in it, and then we’re talking about exceptional-ism, which is so American." - Dr. Coya Paz on The Morning AMp.

WBEZ's Alex Keefe on Illinois Tax Refunds for Property Owners

morningamp:

Reporter Alex Keefe from WBEZ joined the AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams in the studio as he filled them in on Governor’s Quinn’s plan to provide property owners, but not renters, with a $500 annual refund.
