Since news broke that SB 8—a law that bans all abortions after embryonic cardiac activity—would go into effect in Texas, the state of abortion access has been in chaos. Coverage of the law and challenges to it have been all over the map.
The ban also created a ripple effect: Other states, including Florida, have introduced similar bills, and abortion clinics in states bordering Texas are receiving more patients than they can handle, creating havoc for abortion providers.
In a virtual subscriber-only event, advocates and experts on the ground joined Rewire News Group‘s Executive Editor Jessica Mason Pieklo this week for an illuminating and urgent conversation on what the Texas ban actually means for providers and patients, not only in the state but across the country.
- Dr. Ghazaleh Moayedi, OB-GYN and board member of Physicians for Reproductive Health and Texas Equal Access Fund
- Odile Schalit, executive director of the Brigid Alliance
- Aimee Arrambide, executive director of Avow
