Preview: What’s Fueling Today’s Abortion Debate?

January 23, 2013

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. On the next Moyers & Company, Bill discusses the fierce challenges facing the reproductive rights movement 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.

Also on the program, 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.
