Madelyn Puterbaugh, who said that her birth control had failed and that it was "not the right time" for her to bear a child, recovers at Preterm, a nonprofit abortion clinic, in Cleveland, Sept. 30, 2013. Ohio has passed a web of rules designed to discourage abortions without violating Supreme Court guidelines. (Photo: Michael F.

McElroy/The New York Times) The war on female reproductive rights in the United States came into sharp focus this past week in Texas, where a decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit allowed the state to block women from getting services from one-third of abortion providers. In response, reproductive health care providers took the to the U.S. Supreme Court, where Associate Justice Antonin Scalia denied an emergency request to stay the appeals court's ruling, asking the state to file a response by November 12. And in Jackson Mississippi last week, the last abortion clinic in that state, The Women's Health organization, was under siege from a group called Operation Save America.

Today, we speak with Sunsara Taylor of StopPatriarchy.org, who just returned from Jackson defending the Women's Health organization from the anti-choice group Operation Save America, described by StopPatriarchy.org as a "extreme, violence inciting, women-hating Christian fascist organization."
