Episode 44: Mississippi Appendectomy.

This week we are without any show notes thanks to Ann! Dan explains why in case no. 14302 Dan v. Ann.

This week we take a closer look at America’s forced sterilization that was in effect until the late 1970s. California, North Carolina, and Virginia were some of the biggest offenders in stripping the ability of people to have children, without their consent.

Dan explains why we have no show notes this week and had to call for backup last minute a couple of weeks ago when Ann notified him that she wouldn’t be available to record, on the day of recording.

Ann argues that she gave enough notice for arrangements to be made.
