On Oct. 11, 2023, The Texas Tribune published a longform story by reporter Eleanor Klibanoff and photojournalist Shelby Tauber about Miranda Michel, a 26-year-old Texan who was told her twin sons had a zero percent chance of survival after childbirth. Texas' abortion laws required her to carry the pregnancy to term.

Last week, Klibanoff and Tauber sat down with Terri Langford, the Tribune's health and human services editor, for a candid conversation about the project, the challenges in covering such a sensitive issue, and their relationship with Miranda Michel through her journey.
