Abortion, Guns, Racism: Is the US still Liberty's poster child? - To the point.

Liberty - it is the big American promise, a foundation of the American Dream - and it's a beacon that shines around the world. But that American brand of liberty seems to be redefined, when millions of women find themselves suddenly deprived of their reproductive rights.

The supreme court has overturned the right to terminate a pregnancy, several states have already banned abortions outright. Ex-President Trump already hails it as a "divine decision", while President Biden warns of a further erosion of civil liberties.

The USA in 2022, a nation deeply divided: over abortion, over guns, and by racism. Today, we ask: Is the US no longer the global poster boy of liberty?

Our guests: Emilia Roig (political scientist), Laura von Daniels (analyst), Erik Kirschbaum (journalist)
