Guest Host: Steve Roberts

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments this week on whether a Nebraska law banning what’s known as "partial birth abortion" is too broad and could be used to block other kinds of abortions. A panel discusses how this ruling may influence the debate over the rights of unborn children and women’s rights to safe, effective health care.
