A few of the recent pieces I recommend reading:
Renee Bracey Sherman at Vox: Recent abortion bans will impact poor people and people of color most
Ayana Elizabeth Johnson in Scientific American: We Must Defend Science in the Face of Political Attacks
Helen Branswell at STAT: Could an emergency declaration over Ebola make a bad situation worse?
Two articles on the fate of rural hospitals: Sarah Jane Tribble’s “Dealing With Hospital Closure, Pioneer Kansas Town Asks: What Comes Next?” (Kaiser Health News/NPR) and Eli Saslow’s “Who’s going to take care of these people?” (Washington Post)
