424: John Becker Cites a Med Journal From 1917, West Plains High School’s Confederate Flag Problem

Throwing Shade #424 January 1, 2020

Welcome to 2020! For the first Throwing Shade of the year, Erin talks about Ohio representative John Becker, who authored the infamous ectopic pregnancy abortion bill without consulting a single doctor about whether the procedure is even possible (it’s not). Then, Bryan discusses a story out of West Plains, Missouri about a group of high school students who unfurled a Confederate flag in response to their classmates handing out rainbow flags.
