Politics Podcast: Why Most Abortions Are Currently Banned In Texas

Late Wednesday night in a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court decided not to block a Texas law banning most abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy – making it the most restrictive abortion law in the country. The court did not rule on the constitutionality of the law, but the law is now in effect, with the consequence that most abortions are banned in the state. In this episode of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew discusses what legal debates are currently going on, what the decision for Roe v. Wade could mean and where Americans generally stand on abortion restrictions.
