With multiple states recently passing strict restrictions on abortions, the Supreme Court’s stance on the issue could soon be put to the test. In this hour of Forum, we take a look at the state of the high court and what its transformation under the Trump Administration means for contentious national issues. We’ll also hear about a new PBS Frontline documentary that dives deep into how the current conservative majority on the court came to be.

Guests:

Michael Kirk, documentary filmmaker, PBS Frontline

Greg Stohr, Supreme Court reporter, Bloomberg News

Jacqueline Thomsen, courts reporter, The Hill
