The lives and legacies of death penalty and breast cancer activist Martina Davis-Correia and her brother, Troy Anthony Davis, whose execution in Georgia in 2011 helped to reinvigorate the movement to end the death penalty.  We speak with Kimberly Davis, Troy and Martina’s sister, and with Jen Marlowe, author of the book I AM TROY DAVIS.

Why did Texas police search a school with helicopters after a girl miscarried in the bathroom? In the national panic over abortion, women seeking routine medical care can be treated as suspects.  We talk with blogger and women’s health reporter Amanda Marcotte.
