Episode Summary

EDIT
What's Fueling the Modern Abortion Debate?
AIRED:
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that overturned many federal and state restrictions on a woman's right to an abortion. But while polls show that most Americans support the decision, and that a majority -- for the first time -- believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, anti-abortion forces show no sign of relenting. A study by the Guttmacher Institute reported that state legislatures passed 92 provisions restricting a woman's access to reproductive health care in 2011 -- a number four times higher than the previous year. Bill discusses the changing face of the reproductive rights movement and those it serves -- as well as the success of social conservatives on the abortion front -- with Jessica González-Rojas, Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, and Lynn Paltrow, founder and Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women. In a second segment, Bill talks to U.S. Representative Peter Welch (D-VT) on the bi-partisan bill to repeal the $500 million mysterious Congressional giveaway to the drug company Amgen.moreless
