Abortion: Mission Impossible | The Weekly Show with Jon Stewart

From The Weekly Show with Jon Stewart.

The media may have you believe that the recent Supreme Court decision on Mifepristone was a win for reproductive rights. In reality, it merely upheld the current status quo – a drastic departure from the standard once set by Roe. And an onslaught of challenges, aimed at making abortion impossible, if not illegal, are on the horizon.

Joining us to explore this regression we have Melissa Murray, NYU Law Professor and Co-host of the Strict Scrutiny Podcast, and Jessica Valenti, founder of http://AbortionEveryDay.com and author of the forthcoming book, Abortion: Our Bodies, Their Lies, and the Truths We Use to Win. Together, they discuss how our distorted democracy brought us to this moment, unpack the backward slide of abortion rights in America, and offer tips on what we can do to counter this trend.
