Published

On Sunday, CBS aired the full interview with Ivanka Trump, expanding on the shorter “Face the Nation” clip that premiered last Sunday.

Abortion rights activists have denounced the move as an "ideological" one, and a cynical attempt by anti-abortion groups to use the virus crisis to their own ends.

Those rights activists have taken several state governments to court to keep the clinics up and running.
