Media Roundtable: Brazil's COVID Pandemic, Abortion In The US & Oakland School Board Ousts Police
On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we're discussing the Coronavirus crisis in Brazil. The country now has the second-highest COVID-19 death toll in the world after the US. More than one million people have been infected and over 50,000 have died.
Later in the show, we'll talk about how Republicans are exploiting the pandemic to restrict access to abortion across the country and we’ll get an update on the Supreme Court’s first major ruling on abortion rights.
We'll also learn more about Oakland's school board decision to eliminate its police force.
