The Laura Flanders Show Saturday: Robert Greenwald, Revs. Nancy Wilson and Alta Garcia Perez

Martha passes on what's on today's The Laura Flanders Show. How does Martha know this? Well, she's very smart. In fact, she's smart enough to sign up for e-mail alerts at The Laura Flanders Show. (Rod is signed up for the Democracy Now! daily digest which is how he's often able to pass on scheduled topics for upcoming programs.) So you can wait for Saturday to roll around and for me to get around to doing the Laura Flanders post or you could sign up for the e-mail alerts via The Laura Flanders Show .

In addition to the new Wal-Mart movie, Greenwald has directed many others. I know Kat's wanting to cross post, so I'll just list two of my favorites: The Burning Bed (starring Farrah Fawcett, of course) and Unconstitutional: The War On Our Civil Liberties (which was sponsored by the ACLU). (I'm sure Kat's planning to list at least one movie besides Greenwald's latest.)

By the way, to pick on a case (to go before the Court November 30th) mentioned yesterday, the ACLU has a page on it up at their website. Here's an excerpt:

Reviewing the legal standard by which courts consider abortion restrictions and whether laws regulating abortion must protect women's health.
Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood et al. began in 2003 as a challenge to a New Hampshire law restricting teenagers' access to abortion. The law requires doctors to notify a parent at least 48 hours before performing an abortion for a teenager. The law includes no exception for medical emergencies.
In reviewing this case, the Supreme Court will consider two questions: one, must an abortion restriction, not just New Hampshire's, include a medical emergency exception, and two, can doctors and women continue to challenge dangerous abortion restrictions and ask the courts to strike them down before they can harm women?

At that page, there are a number of links their, timeline, legal briefs, a video with Jennifer Dalven discussing the case and more.

Back to The Laura Flanders Show which you can listen to via podcast (as noted above) but you can also listen to it via broadcast radio (if there's an AAR in your area), via XM Satellite Radio (channel 167) or listen online.
