March 3 CCJ Town Hall: Protecting Mother & Child

March 4, 2016
In this town hall, Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, takes a look at the oral arguments from Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt

House Bill 2 is the Texas law that captured the nation's attention when state legislator Wendy Davis and her pink sneakers took to the Texas Senate floor for an 11-hour filibuster. The measure was signed into law and now requires that a physician performing an abortion have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital and sets the health and safety standards for abortion clinics at the same level as those for an ambulatory surgical center.
 
Dr. Eastman is joined by Teresa Stanton Collett of the University of St. Thomas School of Law and Robin Fretwell Wilson of the University of Illinois College of Law.
