The Frontal Assault on the Right to Abortion

Hosted by  • 

"Women's rights now depend on their ZIP code," according to Planned Parenthood, as more states pass restrictions and outright bans on abortion. Mississippi, Alabama, Kansas and North Dakota are closest to making abortion impossible – 40 years after Roe v. Wade declared it a constitutional right. Why do women want abortions?  What happens when they can't get them?  What are the consequences when unwanted babies are born? Is the current movement about the politics of Red States, or a real effort to repeal Roe v. Wade?
