Description

The Supreme Court's conservative majority allowed a Texas law banning most abortions to go into effect. Almost immediately, abortion providers had to begin turning people away.

NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on the court's interpretation of the Texas law and its controversial enforcement provision, which allows any private citizen to sue someone who helps a person get an abortion — with the plaintiff due $10,000 in damages and court costs.

Kathryn Kolbert, co-founder of the Center for Reproductive Rights, explains how abortion rights activists are responding.

Additional reporting in this episode came from stories by NPR's Wade Goodwyn and Ashley Lopez of member station KUT.
