What a great interview. Selfishly, I'd love her to do a public speaking tour.

It really is a terrific profile--thanks so much for posting it. She's clearly an important figure in American reproductive justice history.

Well behaved women seldom make history. Of course even the rabble-rousers don’t make history either. I’m sorry this is the first I’m hearing of this woman she sounds amazing.

Oh, it's Lili Loofbourow. She's marvelous.

Maginnis is a hero.

Click on the photo in the tweet to see the full thing. Budding photographers: this is why you ask your subject if there is anything they want to do with a picture/portrait; it might be an awful idea, but it also might be the best picture you take.
