Texas's new, highly restrictive abortion law, SB8, has been in effect for a few weeks now. What has it changed for residents of Texas, and what does it reflect about U.S. courts and the future of Roe v. Wade? We caught up with Rachel Rebouche, Interim Dean and Professor of Law at Temple University Beasley School of Law, to talk about what's been happening in Texas, in other states, and nationally as a result of this new law. We discuss how both state and federal courts have been responding and why the Supreme Court didn't block SB8. Plus, Rebouche describes some of the real-life effects caused by lack of access to abortion, and where she thinks we could be in a year.
