Interview with Chuck Nelson, anti-MTR activist and chairman of the board of the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

In January 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency revoked the Clean Water Act permit for the Spruce No. 1 coal mine, the largest mountaintop removal site in West Virginia. Mountaintop removal coal mining is the process of blowing up mountain tops to access the coal seams underneath, and dumping the rocks and earth into valleys below. Citing major environmental damage if the project proceeded, including the burial of miles of mountain streams, this was the first time the EPA had rescinded an already-granted permit from the Army Corps of Engineers.

Interview with Dr. Margaret Flowers, Maryland pediatrician and member of Physicians for a National Health Program, conducted by Scott Harris

The fate of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act hangs in the balance as the Supreme Court Justices set aside three days, ending on March 28, to hear arguments from opponents of the controversial health insurance reform law. The justices will hear arguments centered on four issues filed in multiple lawsuits by 26 states and other opponents. The first issue was whether the court has jurisdiction to hear the case, given that as no one will pay the new law’s tax penalty until 2015. The second and most important issue deals with the constitutionality of the law's requirement that all U.S. residents either buy insurance or pay a tax penalty. The third issue focuses on whether the law’s expansion of Medicaid unlawfully forces states to participate.

Interview with Terry O'Neill, president of National Organization for Women, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
 
On his Feb. 29 nationally syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh attacked a female law student named Sandra Fluke, who had volunteered to testify before a congressional committee about the need for birth control to be covered under the Affordable Care Act. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman, Darrel Issa, had earlier prevented Fluke from testifying before his committee, because he said, the focus of the hearing was not on women's health, but on religious persecution.

In 1965, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Griswold v. Connecticut that married couples have the right to use birth control. In fact, at that time Connecticut was one of the last states to bar access to birth control based on the 19th century moral police empowered under the Comstock Law. In 1972, in Eisenstadt v. Baird that right was extended to unmarried individuals as well.
