Summary

  • While polls show that a majority of Americans believe that abortion should be legal in most cases, anti-abortion forces show no sign of relenting. In 2011 state legislatures passed 92 provisions restricting a woman's access to reproductive health care. Moyers discusses the changing face of the reproductive rights movement with advocates, Jessica González-Rojas and Lynn Paltrow. In a second segment, Moyers interviews Vermont congressman, Peter Welch who is sponsoring a bill to repeal the $500 million Congressional giveaway to the drug company Amgen.
