Mar 22, 2019

It’s March 22nd. Today, we Skimm’d This:

  • The governor of Mississippi just signed a law that would ban abortions after 6 weeks. It’s already getting legal attention. And anti-abortion activists are hoping they can take it to the big leagues: the Supreme Court.

  • We asked you to tell us about your women of the week. And Skimm’rs Emma and Erica thanked their mommas for what they gave ‘em. We’ll let them tell it.
