Charlotte Robertson | June 29, 2016 | College
Brock, it has been three weeks since your name scarred headlines across every publication in the nation. It has been three weeks and I still flip through the details of the Stanford rape case in my head each day.

We wouldn't allow providers to be so thoroughly terrorized that only doctors with exceptionally strong political views are willing to help women exercise their right.
