Movie of the Year: 1973
On the 1973 Finale Part Three we we are down to four movies, one of which is our 1973 Movie of the Year!
By the time you have finished listening to 1973 Finale Part Three, you will know 1973’s Movie of the Year. 1973 was a fine year at the movies. Maybe it’s not the powerhouse we anticipated. But looking at the remaining movies—Coffy, Don’t Look Now, Mean Streets, and The Exorcist—it’s clear that, no matter which wins, a titan of film is surely being proclaimed. Any of these movies could win it, which is why it has often been called, “The Most Unpredictable Night in Hollywood.”
Also, we give out some of our most-coveted awards because we love winners here. So join us, won’t you, as we say goodbye to 1973. And hello to our newest winner of Movie of the Year!
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.
