In this video from Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics, I discuss rival abortion access proposals in Pennsylvania that both have Democratic support. One imitates a Texas law that shut down a third of that state’s abortion clinics by requiring doctors who provide abortion services to get admitting privileges from a hospital, and the other would protect abortion access by creating “buffer zones” around clinic entrances and exits where anti-choice protesters couldn’t harass women on their way in and out. I close with my take on PA Democrats’ ongoing division over this issue.
