Maddow: Virginia's Draconian Attack on Legal Abortion

Rachel Maddow has been vigilant in not letting the War on Women be waged without a fight, and her dedication is particularly impressive given that said war is taking place on so many fronts it's nearly impossible to keep track. 

Here she takes on one of the more insidious rollbacks, in Virginia, in which excessive restrictions and regulations  (really code words for anti-choice measures) are making it all but impossible for many women to obtain legal abortions at all.

Check out the beginning of the clip for a sneak peek of Rachel's thoughts un the upcoming GOP Vice-Presidential race, and what it means for social issues like reproductive freedom.
