Latino USA - Control

Latino USA examines the notion of control, who has it, and how we lose it. First, we hear from Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. Then, Pilar Marrero of La OpiniĆ³n joins us to analyze the GOP's immigration platform. We revisit the history of the IUD and ask teens about how they use condoms. We learn about Crisis Pregnancy Centers. We hear from D.C.'s Health and Human Services director, and discuss whether it's even useful to call out racists on Twitter. And Maria Hinojosa reveals her own story of loss, decision, and empowerment.
