In her latest Opinion piece for the New York Times, Michelle Goldberg recounts the story of two women who came to the aid of a friend in Texas, securing her the abortion health care she needed to escape an abusive relationship with her ex-husband. The events are situated in the context of controversy over Texas' abortion bounty laws. Goldberg both recounts the three women's story and includes the reflections of experts such as NYU's Melissa Murray, true to the reported column genre. Here's Goldberg's lede:  
"The month after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, a mother of two in Texas who had filed for divorce from her husband discovered she was pregnant. Determined not to have another child and worried that her husband would try to use the pregnancy to make her stay with him, she did what many of us would do and turned to two friends for help." 
Stay tuned for my own reported column that I will be publishing on this blog in the next couple of weeks!
