Description

Senate Democrats failed to pass a bill that would have codified the right to an abortion Wednesday, with West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin voting with all Republicans in opposition. Polls show a majority of Americans support Roe V. Wade, but opinions vary widely when it comes to restrictions like waiting periods, required ultrasounds, and gestational cutoffs.

Also, we look at how different religions define the beginning of life, and what that means for the thorny political debate on abortion.

This episode: White House Correspondent Scott Detrow, congressional correspondent Susan Davis, and national correspondent Susan Davis.
