We speak with Mark Joseph Stern. a legal reporter and writer for Slate.com, about the Texas antiabortion bill, which penalizes those who help a woman get an abortion, and establishes a "Stasi" like mechanism for anyone to report an abortion "suspect". This new law was passed as a way to harass women and providers. It is designed to have a chilling effect. Mr. Stern goes through a list of questions about this law in detail.
