The End of Roe v. Wade?

There are few issues more politicized than abortion.  In the United States, the center of that debate falls to the court decision, ROE V. WADE.

Brian Lehrer sat down with Dahlia Lithwick of Slate Magazine after she published a piece on the issue.  What she clearly states is that the majority of Americans still believe that abortions should be legal in “extreme” circumstances, but that the legislature has become more emboldened as they cut away some of the original decision’s power.

What this interview does not do is take sides or declare a winner; rather if offers analysis on the trends of the debate itself and seeks to understand the reasons for those trends.
