Bees and ovaries
Front Page, week of July 2, 2022
I think it would be hard to argue, after this week, that the U.S. Supreme Court has not been politicized.
It’s going to take some time for us to grapple with this as a nation. My only best hope is that this might break the longstanding gridlock in Congress as they are forced (by the electorate) to act on things that had been thought to be settled by the court only to be upended by today’s conservative majority.
I’m also happy to present some work from Katie Plummer and Davi Sprague, who separately went to the reproductive rights protest on June 25 and both submitted photos to Copper Beacon.
I’m expecting a lot more protests this year, hopefully, there will be plenty of reporters, too.
Follow-up planned on 4th of July
