    Rutgers University vice dean and professor Kimberly Mutcherson sits down with NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller to discuss the U.S. Supreme Court’s pending decision on House Bill 2 that could have far-reaching effects on access to abortion.

    The first major abortion case since 1992’s Planned Parenthood v. Casey will decide if Texas’ recent abortion restrictions are an undue burden. The Texas Legislature say that the bill is about safeguarding women’s health, while opponents claim it is to limit women’s access to abortion.

    The decision could result in changes in accessing abortion that would differ depending on whether you live in Pennsylvania, Delaware or New Jersey.
