Abortion Opponents' Underhanded Tactics

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

On Sunday, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed into law a state budget that includes some of the most restrictive anti-abortion measures in the country. One day later—and just a week after the now famous Wendy Davis filibuster—the Texas state legislature kicked off their second special session, in which Republican lawmakers aim to pass their own legislation that would make Texas one of the hardest places in the country for women to get an abortion.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is joined by Texas State Senator Leticia van de Putte and Ohio-based columnist Connie Schultz to discuss the draconian tactics these legislatures have employed to bypass public debate and offer some friendly PR advice for the men that sign anti-abortion bills.
