Susan Herman on “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy"

program date: 
Wed, 02/15/2012

 Host Lisa Loving speaks with Susan Herman about her new book “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy” which takes a hard look at the human and social costs of the War on Terror. A decade after 9/11, it is far from clear that the government's hastily adopted antiterrorist tactics--such as the Patriot Act--are keeping us safe, but it is increasingly clear that these emergency measures in fact have the potential to ravage our lives--and have already done just that to countless Americans. Herman gives a powerful account of how civil liberties have rapidly eroded in post-9/11 America, tells numerous stories of ordinary people caught in the government's surveillance dragnet, explains that the state of emergency has continued into the Obama administration, and shows why we must remain vigilant if we are to hold on to our age-old freedoms

Susan Herman is President of the American Civil Liberties Union. She holds a chair as Centennial Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, where she teaches courses and seminars in Constitutional Law, Terrorism, and Civil Liberties. She is the author of “The Right to a Speedy and Public Trial: A Reference Guide to the The Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution” and “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy.”

 
 
 

 

What's wrong with anti-contraception conservatives?

program date: 
Wed, 02/01/2012

 Lisa Loving's guest is Robert Walker, Executive Vice President of the Population Institute.

If the current GOP presidential primary campaign is remembered for nothing else, it will be known for the meteoric rise of the "anti-contraception conservatives."

• Rick Santorum thinks states should have the power to ban family planning.

• Mitt Romney wants to eliminate funding for Title X, which helps to provides low-income women with access to family planning and reproductive health services.

• Rick Perry proudly trumpeted the fact that Texas had slashed state support for family planning clinics by two-thirds.

Taxpayers may instinctively applaud such cuts. But every dollar invested in helping women avoid unwanted pregnancies saves $4.02 in Medicaid expenditures that otherwise will be needed for pregnancy-related care.

Furthermore, many fail to realize that eliminating publicly-supported family planning services would actually increase the number of abortions in the U.S. Title X-supported centers alone helped avert 406,200 abortions in 2008 by providing high quality contraception.

"That it has gotten as far as it has in the past 18 months is unnerving," says Robert Walker of the Population Institute. "The escalating assaults on contraception are not only short-sighted financially,” but according to Walker, "they are really a war on women and their reproductive health and rights."

Robert Walker is the Executive Vice President of the Population Institute, which works to promote voluntary family planning and reproductive health services, and to increase awareness of the social, economic, and environmental consequences of rapid population growth.

Tune in and call 503-231-8187 with your stories about the issue, plus find out how you can help increase literacy in your community. Wednesday at 8am on 90.7 FM, KBOO.

Oregon Zoo Arctic Ambassador, Caroline Bass, talks about Climate Change

Categories:
program date: 
Wed, 12/28/2011

Host Lisa Loving’s guest is teenaged activist and Oregon Zoo Arctic Ambassador Caroline Bass, who traveled to the far northern reaches of Manitoba, Canada this fall with Polar Bears International to learn more about global warming and the threatened habitat of polar bears. What can we do to save the planet?

Article Co-Authored by Caroline at the PBI Leadership Camp:
A Lazy Bear & Energized Teens

 (Photos by Caroline Bass)

During the show, a listener recommended Dirt, The Movie

The importance of eating less meat came up, and a listener recommended Go Vegan Radio.

Another listener, Barry, claimed that Human Emissions are irrelevant because Volcanoes emit much, much, more Greenhouse Gas than Humans ever could, so changing OUR behavior would have little or no effect on climate.  He implied that  we'd have to plug up all the world's Volcanoes to get any significant reduction in Greenhouse Gases.

Well...  The Scientists at the USGS think otherwise...  "Human activities, responsible for a projected 35 billion metric tons (gigatons) of CO2 emissions in 2010 (Friedlingstein et al., 2010), release an amount of CO2 that dwarfs the annual CO2 emissions of all the world’s degassing subaerial and submarine volcanoes."
