We've invited 3 highly-respected economic thinkers from different perspectives, to see if there is some common economic ground, and whether that common ground tells us anything about how we can improve our economic health. Roundtable participants:

Rana Foroohar of Time Magazine;
and John Makin of the American Enterprise Institute.

The Family Planning Fight Continues (Episode #311H)

KQED 9: Fri, Mar 15, 2013 -- 10:30 PM

In the two weeks since the sequester began and the effects are already being felt. One of the federal programs being cut is funding of family planning clinics - those serving primarily low-income and uninsured individuals. With $15 million in cuts slated to happen over the next year, things such as cancer screenings, testing for sexually transmitted infections, and reproductive health care services might suddenly be unavailable to more than 100,000 primarily low-income women across the country.
Texas has already been down this road. In 2011, the state legislature slashed the budget for family planning services by $73 million dollars for 2012 and 2013. The result? More than 50 family planning clinics across the state closed. NTK's Mona Iskander traveled there last summer and filed this report.
Anchor Scott Simon interviews Pam Belluck, a health and science writer for The New York Times, who looks at what's happening to these programs in other states.
And from "American Voices," Judy Norsigian, one of the authors of "Our Bodies, Ourselves," provides an historical account of women's health policy debates over the past 40 years.
