Women in red states advised to hide pregnancies ahead of Supreme Court ruling

As an author, activist and operations director at a women's health clinic in the deep South, Robin Marty knows more about the abortion wars than anyone. She joins us this week to talk about how a maximalist Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v Wade would have far-reaching impacts on people in blue states as well as those living under Republican rule. 
 
Then we speak with Michael Tomasky, the editor of The New Republic, about Democrats' hesitancy to describe the American right's assaults on democracy in plain terms and the legacy media's powerful bias toward reporting on our politics as if these are normal times--a tendency that helps enable the authoritarian far-right.
