On today's "In the News" roundtable, Brian Becker, Esther Iverem, Nicole Roussell and Walter Smolarek discuss how a Texas law has destroyed abortion rights for 16 million women and girls and is being used by right-wing political forces as a model for the rest of the country -- but a new fightback movement is taking shape. They also discuss the end of key pandemic relief programs, the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, important victories won by the struggle against the racist murders of Elijah McClain and Ahmaud Arbery, and more.
