Why Do We Criminalize Pregnant Women?
16 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.

Too Good To Be True? Two State Universities Propose Major Tuition Reduction Plans
20 plays

morningamp:

The University of Michigan and the University of Wisconsin have proposed plans to drastically reduce tuition for incoming students. Michigan proposes a deferred, interest-free payment plan, where students start paying back after they graduate and at Madison, two professors propose just straight up dropping tuition for the first two years through reinvestment of financial aid from private to public universities.

The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams discussed what this can do for incoming students, what this means for the future of higher education and whether or not this breakthrough will ripple onto other college campuses.

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.
