How to give a speech in 45 seconds

West Virginia’s legislature is considering a bill to prohibit abortions, with no exceptions for rape or incest. Of course it’ll pass; that legislature is over two-thirds Republican (78-22 in the lower house, 23-11 in the senate), and the GOP governor will sign it. Citizen input is a mer[...]
