A chemical abortion is a two-pill regimen that ends the life of the baby and poses health risks to the mother. The deaths of 24 women have been "associated with the abortion pill,” Melanie Israel, a research associate in The Heritage Foundation's DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society, says.
Israel joins the show to discuss her recent research paper, “Chemical Abortion: A Review,” which provides extensive information on the history and risks of chemical abortions.
Also on today’s show, we talk about a new petition to force a House vote on a bill to require medical care for babies who survive an abortion procedure. Plus, we break down what you need to know about the controversy over singer Taylor Swift’s new album “Fearless (Taylor’s Version).” And as always, we’ll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.
