Megan Phelps-Roper on Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church is known for picketing military funerals and its celebration of death and tragedy, even the 9/11 attacks. Megan Phelps-Roper is the granddaughter of the church's founder and was one of its staunchest members. But seven years ago, she broke away and now works to combat extremism. She sits down with Michel to talk about her journey and new memoir "Unfollow."
