Dare to Listen: Texas’ Abortion Law And The Future of Reproductive Rights
Texas now has the most restrictive anti-abortion law in the nation and to enforce it, there’s a $10,000 reward for civilians who successful sue anyone who assists in an illegal abortion. Has Texas beaten Roe v. Wade? Will Senate Bill 8 stand up to legal challenges?
Texas Public Radio hosts a Dare to Listen conversation on Wednesday, Sept. 22, from 7-8 p.m. Central on Facebook Live about SB 8 and its ramifications for women and reproductive rights in Texas and beyond.
