To The Contrary
This episode began with a discussion on the birth of octuplets to a Texas woman and the subsequent medical and ethical issues, such as possible long-term medical problems the children will face, the financial drain on taxpayers, and whether there should be regulation placed on fertility technology. Next was a discussion on a class action lawsuit against the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and the Pacific Maritime Association brought by women who work on docks in Los Angeles and Long Beach, who charge the unions have not fulfilled a 1983 federal order to hire more women. Finally a "behind the headlines" segment featuring an interview with Rep. Judy Biggert on Social Security reform, followed by a discussion by the panel on whether Social Security can be saved and its importance to women. [26 minutes]
