13 States To Ban Abortions If Roe V. Wade Overturned
Don Lemon Tonight
May 6, 2022

Thirteen states will see ‘trigger bans’ go into effect if Roe v. Wade is officially overturned, almost immediately banning abortions. Texas, which already has one of the most restrictive anti-abortion laws in the country, is one of those states. Former Democrat presidential candidate, Beto O'Rourke, is running in the Texas governor's race. He joins to discuss the impact the trigger ban will have on Texans seeking abortion services, and what a possible Roe decision could mean for the midterms.

Plus, the Chief Justice speaks out on the SCOTUS leak controversy, the U.S. provided intelligence that helped Ukraine target Russia’s Movska warship, the manhunt Intensifies for an Alabama inmate and corrections officer who fled county jail together, and GOP leaders are fed up with Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s antics.
