Death by Mail: Answering the Current Politics Behind the Abortion Pill

My wife Chelsea joins me again as I have officially upgraded her title to "co-host."

We take a break from our series on marriage to talk about recent politics behind the abortion pill and the push to make it widely accessible by mail.

We answer the following questions about the abortion pill:

  1. What is the difference between an abortion and a miscarriage?
  2. What is the difference between the "morning after pill" and the "abortion pill"?
  3. Is the abortion pill actually safer that Tylenol?
  4. Will abortions by mail be safe for women?
