The special session has taken on some added weight this week with the addition of several bills splitting the legislature from its initial redistricting focus. Most controversially, the fetal pain abortion bill has been revitalized in Senate Bill 5.

Terri Burke, executive director of the Texas American Civil Liberties Union, joins us along with San Antonio Coalition for Life Executive Director Matt Schima.
