As a country music fan, it should come as no surprise that I have heard and can sing along to many Tim McGraw songs. One of my favorites is Red Rag Top - the first single off of his 2002 album Tim McGraw and the Dancehall Doctors.

Over the past few weeks I've had the pleasure of reconnecting with my Jewish heritage, meeting women from across the state and discussing the role of women and reproductive rights in Judaism.

A couple of weeks ago, we were fortunate enough to have Lynn Paltrow, Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women join us in a tour through South Carolina and update us on the effects of harmful so-called personhood measures across our nation.
If you were unable to see her and hear these horrific stories, watch this video and remember that for over sixteen years in a row some South Carolina lawmakers have proposed similar fetal personhood measures mentioned in the video.
