As new laws restricting abortion access are passed in Alabama, Georgia, and several other states, some states like Massachusetts are considering legislative changes that would ensure and expand access to abortion care. Lawmakers on Beacon Hill take up the The Roe Act next week, which would bar the state from restricting access and give doctors the discretion to perform the procedure beyond the current 24-week limit.

In for Jim Braude, Adam Reilly was joined by Rebecca Hart Holder, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts, which is in favor of the bill, and C.J. Williams from Massachusetts Citizens For Life, which is opposed to the bill.
