Today, we're sharing five things you need to know about abortion law in advance of a deeper conversation about recent events on Tuesday's episode. 

  1. Abortion has a long emotional history in the US that Roe vs. Wade didn't stop.
  2. Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Georgia have passed "heart beat bills".
  3. Heartbeat bills and outright bans on abortion in all circumstances are surging in popularity, despite the fact that public opinion is largely more nuanced about abortion.
  4. Stare decisions recently took a hit on the Supreme Court. 
  5. Kentucky's law has already been struck down in court. Mississippi and Ohio's are already being challenged. Georgia and Alabama laws are also expected to be challenged.
