Attacks on Reproductive Rights
Access to abortion is declining in an increasing number of states. The Texas Supreme Court has now effectively shut down a federal challenge to the state’s ban on abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. It’s the most restrictive abortion law in the country and other states are following suit. Florida’s legislature passed a bill that would ban abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and in Kentucky, the state House has voted to pass new restrictions that could effectively shut down clinics in the state. Our guest is Amanda Allen, Senior Counsel and Director with the Lawyering Project, one of the organizations that has been challenging the Texas abortion ban in the courts.
