How the Roe ruling might affect other reproductive health matters (June 28, 2022)

On Tuesday’s show: We examine how the overturn of Roe v. Wade might affect other reproductive issues — not just unwanted pregnancies. And a former second-in-command at NASA explains what she thinks is holding the space agency back.

On Tuesday’s show: It's not just unwanted pregnancies. Stricter abortion laws following the Supreme Court's overturn of Roe v. Wade could affect parents who want a child but face medical challenges.

Also this hour: Lori Garver, former NASA Deputy Administrator, talks about her time in the space industry, working to expand NASA’s partnership with commerical space companies, and the experience of women in leadership in the field of space exploration. She has a new book called Escaping Gravity.

Then we revisit our 2016 conversation with Houston writer Leah Lax about her memoir, Uncovered: How I Left Hasidic Life and Finally Came Home.

And we chat with sculptor Joseph Havel, who's retiring as director of the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, after 30 years.
