Professor Caitlin Borgmann was a featured guest on MSNBC’s Martin Bashar program today, discussing North Dakota’s new abortion laws, which forbid abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detectable. A fetal heartbeat can be detected as early as six weeks into a pregnancy using a transvaginal ultrasound.
She recently spoke to the New York Times about this same issue.
Professor Borgmann has litigated reproductive rights cases and has also spoken and written widely about reproductive rights and given testimony before several state legislatures on this issue. She is the editor of the Reproductive Rights Blog.
