The Supreme Court’s coming repeal of constitutional protection for abortion leaves us with a lot of work to do—to protect and expand abortion rights in the states where it will remain legal, and to help women in states where it will be banned. Katha Pollitt joins the Start Making Sense podcast to explain what we need to do now—in politics, health care, and funding.

Plus: “Bad Mexicans”—that what the revolutionaries of 1910 were called as they fought on both sides of the US-Mexico border against the robber barons and their political allies. UCLA historian Kelly Lytle Hernandez tells that story, which is the subject of her new book.
