Abortion rights activists are marching today, voicing opposition to a Texas law that heavily restricts abortion access. The Supreme Court's new term begins Monday, in which it's scheduled to hear a case stemming from Mississippi law that banned most abortions at 15 weeks of pregnancy. Mary Ziegler, author of the book, “Abortion and the Law in America: Roe v. Wade to the Present,” joins to discuss.
