FROM THIS EPISODE

The Right to Life movement has changed its focus from overturning Roe v. Wade to regulating abortion clinics. Abortion supporters say the real goal is to deprive women of their Constitutional right to choose. We hear what the rules mean — especially for poor women — as the US Supreme Court considers a case with profound implications in blue states as well as red ones.

Later on the program, Mexican immigrants leaving the US outnumber those who are trying to get in. Donald Trump's wall on the border might have unintended consequences.

Are States Imposing Undue Burden on a Woman's Right to Choose? 34 MIN, 34 SEC

New rules for abortion clinics in Texas and other states are making it too expensive for many to stay in business. There's concern that women seeking the procedure have to drive long distances and cross state lines. Are the rules designed to protect women's health and safety -- or is the real goal to prevent women from exercising their Constitutional right to choose? Abortion rights activists have persuaded the US Supreme Court to take up that question in a case likely to be decided during next year's presidential campaign.
