I'm honored to be the Alicia Patterson Foundation's 2014 Josephine Patterson Albright Fellow. Here is the press release. My topic is "reproductive rights and the criminal justice system" — in other words, women being arrested for things they do while pregnant. Two stories I've done in this area before were about an illegal at-home abortion in Idaho, and about "chemical endangerment," a controversial felony in Alabama. I will need to write four more stories on this subject by January 2015. Here is the best way to reach me with story tips: [email protected]
