On this edition of Your Call's Media Roundtable, we're discussing the Republican Party's ongoing goal to overturn Roe v Wade. Texas has enacted most restrictive abortion law, which is forcing women and girls to leave the state. In December, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on whether to overrule Roe v. Wade in a case concerning a Mississippi law banning most abortions after 15 weeks.
