Peter Roff, U.S. News & World Report & Bridget Todd, Political Strategist & Ashe Schow, Washington Examiner joins Thom. The controversial Texas anti-women's health law HB2 forced a woman to deliver a baby that had zero chance of survival. 20 weeks into this pregnancy the baby began to arrive prematurely - and the woman rushed to the doctor because she had had a previous miscarriage. The doctors told her that the baby had no chance of survival - but under Texas law it was considered "still alive" - so the parents were sent home to wait for 4 days until the dead fetus was delivered in the hospital. Is this humane to either the baby or the mother - or the father - to force this woman to carry this baby to birth - even though there was zero chance of survival? Is the state responsible for any trauma that this woman endured as a result?
