Saturday Link Love: Healthcare, Intersex Babies, and Handmaid’s Tale

Saturday Link Love: Healthcare, Intersex Babies, and Handmaid’s Tale May 6, 2017

Saturday Link Love is a 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.

 

These are all the people the Republican healthcare bill will hurt, on Vox—“The biggest winners are households making $250,000 a year or more, who would see two different taxes targeting them repealed; households with millions in investment income would come out particularly far ahead. But vastly more Americans would come out behind.”

The midwife who saved intersex babies, on the BBC—“In Zainab’s community, and in many others in Kenya, an intersex baby is seen as a bad omen, bringing a curse upon its family and neighbors.”

I grew up in a fundamentalist cult: The “Handmaid’s Tale” was my reality, by Hannah Ettinger–“Women in this world were treated much like those in The Handmaid’s Tale — most, like my mom, didn’t have their own bank accounts, didn’t have their own email addresses, and couldn’t leave the home without permission from their husbands.”
