Today, a conversation about the state of women’s reproductive rights in America. Since the beginning of this year, nine states have passed laws that seek to ban access to abortions.  Alabama, Mississippi, Ohio, Georgia, Kentucky, Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, and Utah.  Are these laws designed to challenge Roe v. Wade? 

Tom speaks with Diana Philip, the Executive Director of NARAL, Pro Choice MD; Steven H.  Aden, the Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel at Americans United for Life; and University of Baltimore professor of law, Kim Wehle.
