Abortion rights activists are marching today, voicing opposition to a Texas law that heavily restricts abortion access. The Supreme Court’s new term begins Monday, during which it is scheduled to hear a case stemming from a Mississippi law that banned most abortions at 15 weeks of pregnancy. Mary Ziegler, a professor at Florida State University College of Law and author of the book, “Abortion and the Law in America: Roe v. Wade to the Present,” joins to discuss.
