Saturday Link Love: Immigration, Abortion, and Teen Vogue

Saturday Link Love is a new feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

How America’s Idea Of Illegal Immigration Doesn’t Always Match Reality, on NPR—“Without historical data, it’s hard to measure trends. But the estimates for fiscal year 2015 do show that Canadians made up the majority of visa overstays.”

Looking at How Abortion Restrictions Endanger Women’s Lives, on the New Yorker—“Other images show the improvised abortion tools that women described to Abril directly: rat poison, a forty-pound rock, a grapevine stalk, bundles of herbs, a clothes hanger, a steaming-hot bath, a flight of stairs.”

Donald Trump: The Inevitable Republican, on Shakesville—“Trump is not transforming the Republican Party into something it was not before. He is revealing what it has long been.”

National Clinic Violence Survey Shows Increase in Anti-Abortion Violence and Harassment, on Republic of Gilead—“Survey findings suggest that anti-abortion violence and harassment is increasing in the wake of a high-profile smear campaign against Planned Parenthood.”

Progressive protesters face longer odds than the Tea Party did, on Vox—“But here is the key finding: As the Bundy bars highlight, liberals have as much sympathy for their opponents as conservatives do for their friends.”

Stop Being Shocked That Teen Girls Give a Shit About Politics, on Mother Jones—“Carlson’s comment was actually less annoying to Duca than the fawning masses who seem so surprised that a magazine for teenagers can also produce great news commentary.”
