Today's interview is about the rights of women during pregnancy, and whether new mothers should be persecuted for having substances like cannabis in their bloodstream during pregnancy.

Lex speaks with molecular biologist Heather Thompson, and attorney Indra Lusero. They run a birth justice organization called Elephant Circle. They tell Lex about their work, their values, and the experiences that brought them to activism.
