Rachel Maddow: 87% Of U.S. Counties Have No Access To Abortion Clinic

Maddow breaks down all the obstacles to getting an abortion in the U.S.

In an informative and highly disturbing segment, Rachel Maddow goes through all the ways different states block access to abortion. Many states require a 24 hour waiting period, ensuring women have to make two seperate trips; several states have only one abortion provider; others heavily restrict insurers from covering the procedure, etc. etc.

Concludes Maddow, "Why bother making it illegal if you can just make it impossible to get?"
