Dr. Tom Deloe, Retired Health Researcher, Department of Health and Human Services talks to Dr. Christianson about Marijuana.  With the number of states approving medical or even recreational use of marijuana increasing, several questions arise.

Equality for Women

Equality for Women

March 3, 2014

Dr. Christian speaks with Kate Michelman, past President of Pro-Choice America and author, With Liberty and Justice for All.  She believes that a woman’s reproductive rights are fundamental but that these rights suffer more restrictions today than at any time since the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade. Some progress is evident in wages and career opportunities for women, but far short of the goal of total equality.


Ms. Michelman’s passion for women’s equality and reproductive choice began with her own experience of attempting to terminate a fourth pregnancy after giving birth to three daughters in three years and then being abandoned by her husband.
