Sen. Murray: 'This Supreme Court really concerns me'

Kim Malcolm talks with U.S. Senator Patty Murray about the future of Roe v. Wade, and whether Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

So far this year, eight states have passed bills that restrict abortion rights. Backers of an Alabama law that bans nearly all abortions say their intention is to challenge Roe v. Wade.

In March, Murray co-sponsored a bill that would guarantee abortion coverage under Medicaid and other federally-funded health care plans. Abortion coverage is currently banned for federal health insurance programs.
