GW WonkCast S2E2: How States Target Abortion Clinics Through TRAP Laws

Policy Perspectives’ Editor-in-Chief Jessica Burnell joins the WonkCast crew in our second episode this season to discuss how states use TRAP laws to restrict abortion. These laws target abortion clinics themselves, aiming to disincentive abortion services by making them harder to provide. Listen in to learn more about the history of these laws and their viability in the courts.

Nathaniel Rupp returns for this second episode, joined by new co-hosts Gabe Moss and Katherine Lundie, along with Jessica Blackband, our new moderator.
