Short Description: 
Just when you thought is was over, the War on Women returns.

There's one thing we can all set our clocks by -- somewhere, there's a conservative who's really bent that there are women out there having unauthorized sex. State legislators in Michigan, Virginia, Alabama, and Indiana have all recently introduced legislation restricting reproductive rights.

Is this really about protecting the fetus, or is it about controlling women, their bodies, and their sexuality? Or both? Abe and Joe examine this question and take listener phone calls.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/19/13

Air date: 
Tue, 02/19/2013 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe discuss the Keystone XL pipeline project

 Tens of thousands of protesters converged on the National Mall in Washington, DC on Sunday to demand action on climate change. Among their principal targets: the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from the Alberta Tar Sands in Canada to U.S. ports on the Gulf of Mexico.

The project is an environmental disaster waiting to happen. Aquifers, delicate ecosystems, and entire communities would be devastated in the event of a major leak. Small wonder, then, that a Senate majority recently voted in favor of the project, and that the President is at best ambivalent.

Abe and Joe look at the latest battleground between profit and preservation.
