We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

So, If It's Our Choice ...



For years, we have been hearing a particular element of society say the government—in particular the federal government—has no business interfering with their body and their health. This element of society works incessantly to assert that they control their body and it is nobody else’s business.

I never imagined in my life that I would agree with women who say that abortion is their choice, until I recently read a petition that says, “Individual Mandate—which forces Americans to buy a government-approved health-care plan—not only infringes on your right to control your own health care, but serves as the linchpin of Obamacare.”

So does this mean women who believe in abortion oppose Obamacare because the Affordable Care Act infringes on their right to control their own health care?
