Today on The Signorile Show!

4:35pm ETAlthough Anti-abortion violence is considered a form of terrorism, it is often excluded from government reports, which can help create an impression that it is no longer a problem.  However, anti-abortion violence remains a troubling element of America's domestic terrorism environment and new research from the Feminist Foundation reveals that more than half of abortion clinics and doctors are faced with daily threats and intimidation.  These threats, often including vandalism, arsons, bombings, drive-by shootings, and assassination attempts, are continuously putting doctors' and clinic workers' lives on the line.  Furthermore, when compounded with the fact the Republicans and conservatives have slowly been chipping away at women’s reproductive rights across the country has created the most dangerous environment for women’s rights since the historic Supreme Court decision in the Roe v. Wade case of 1973.  Joining us today to discuss the history of abortion in the US and how it transformed our society for the better and what is being done to erode those gains is Dr. David A. Grimes, who currently serves as a Clinical Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and whose new book Every Third Women in America: How Legal Abortion Transformed America reflects his 40 years’ experience as a gynecologist and his life’s work of fighting for the civil rights of women of America.
