Movie of the Year
The 2023 BOTY Movie Preview Show covers all the great movies of 2023!
We have talked about the rest, now let’s talk about the best: films. It is movietime, folks, and that means we have to call in the big guns—friends of the pod Kate and Nate (no relation)—and start voting movies off the island. No human being can watch sixteen movies, and so we have to do the painful act of cutting eight loose right away. Luckily, we are good friends, so there is no way this could threaten our rock-hard friendships.
By the time this episode is done, we’ll have eight movies left. One of those movies WILL be our 2023 Movie of the Year!
We used to do this for fun. Then, it was for the entertainment. Eventually, we came to do it for ourselves.
But now? Now, we do it to destroy each other.
Abortion is healthcare
While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.
The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.
Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.
Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.
You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit donations4abortion.com.
