Interstate travel is the next target of abortion rights opponents
In the 15 months since Roe v. Wade was overturned, 15 states have banned abortion and almost a dozen others have imposed restrictions on the procedure.
Nowadays, nearly 6 in 10 women live in a state that’s hostile to abortion rights, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
Recently, some conservative groups in states like Idaho and Texas have pushed to prevent people from traveling to get an abortion out-of-state.
What lengths are some conservative groups willing to go to restrict abortion? What say, if any, should states have in enforcing abortion restrictions through travel?
We convene a panel of experts to discuss.
