NPR's Alex Chadwick talks to Slate political editor Will Saletan about the policy implications of the U.S. Congress passing a ban on one late-term abortion procedure, and the Florida legislature's decision to allow Gov. Jeb Bush to restore an artificial feeding tube to Terri Schiavo, who has been in a persistent vegetative state for more than a decade.
