November 30, 2012 — Our weekly video roundup includes a unique assortment of Web videos hand-picked by our editors. This week, we feature two discussions from "The Melissa Harris-Perry Show" about a landmark study on women's abortion experiences and state efforts to restrict reproductive rights.
Diana Greene Foster, director of research at Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health, spoke with MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry about the Turnaway Study, which compared the experiences of women who sought abortion care and obtained it with those who were turned away because they were over the gestational limit (Harris-Perry , "The Melissa Harris-Perry Show," MSNBC, 11/25).
Harris-Perry led a discussion with Foster, Salon's Irin Carmon and Rebecca Traister, Brandeis University Professor Anita Hill, and Heather McGhee of Demos. The panel responds to Ohio lawmakers' move to advance legislation restricting abortion and blocking funding to Planned Parenthood, immediately after an election in which state exit polls show most voters support abortion rights (Harris-Perry , "The Melissa Harris-Perry Show," MSNBC, 11/25).
