The US Supreme Court may soon embark on one of its most sweeping reviews of abortion access in close to a decade. Several cases--including a Texas law that could close most of the state's abortion clinics---may be headed to the Court.

Abortion rights is also on the ballot in states like Tennessee and Colorado this fall.

On this week's Friday Roundtable, we talk about the critiques leveled at activists that both support and oppose abortion. We also discuss Katha Pollitt's new book, "Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights."

"I want us to start thinking of abortion as a positive, social good and saying this out loud," Pollitt writes.
