Quick Hit: Advocates talking abortion access at Mother Jones today

"keep abortion safe and legal" signsWe all know that the battle over reproductive rights is mostly being waged in the states–from North Dakota to Texas to Mississippi. Today, Mother Jones is hosting a live discussion with some of the people working on the front lines to “keep choice alive” at the state level. The speakers include advocates from the Center for Reproductive Rights and the ACLU, as well  as Dr. Willie Parker, whose heroic work as an abortion provider at the last remaining clinic Mississippi we’ve highlighted before.

You can submit your questions here or tweet them at @motherjones using the hashtag #KeepingChoiceAlive. The discussion starts at 1pm EST here.
