The End of Roe Vs. Wade: Inside the Right’s Plan to Destroy Legal Abortion



GUEST: Jessica Mason Pieklo is Vice President of Law and the Courts at Rewire.News. She is a writer and adjunct law professor in Boulder, Colorado.

She is the former assistant director of the Health Law Clinic at Hamline Law School in St. Paul, Minnesota and former litigator. She is the co-author of a new book with Robin Marty called The End of Roe Vs. Wade: Inside the Right's Plan to Destroy Legal Abortion.

BACKGROUND: The American right-wing has enjoyed one success after another in chipping away and women's legal right to an abortion. The decision by Donald Trump's administration to withhold Title X funding for family planning from providers that also offer abortion is only one prong of a multi-prong effort. Other efforts include a steady stream of state-wide bans on abortion at earlier and earlier stages of pregnancy including when a pregnancy is first confirmed through an ultrasound.

How did we, in this modern-day age, come to a point where women's bodies are still being legislated?
