Scott Simon speaks to reporter Dianne Solis of the Dallas Morning News about the recent increase in Americans seeking abortion medication in Mexico.

Abortion access is changing quickly state by state after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade last month. In Texas and other states where abortion is severely restricted, many women seeking care have begun looking to travel, including south of the border. Dianne Solis is a reporter at the Dallas Morning News. She has recently covered the surge of women crossing into Mexico for access to abortion medication, and she joins us now. Thanks so much for being with us.
