Never mind that the Supreme Court has ruled that Abortion is a woman’s choice…
As Republicans take over local and state legislatures….They work piece by piece to nibble way at the courts ruling on the womans right….
According to a new study by the Guttmacher Institute, “so far this year, states have enacted 51 new abortion restrictions; this brings the number of restrictions enacted since 2010 to 282. Although only about a dozen states remain in session as of July 1, these states may well enact additional restrictions before the end of the year. Following the recent pattern of increased restrictions in odd-numbered years (largely because not all legislatures are in session in even-numbered years), states have enacted more restrictions during the first half of this year than during all of last year.”
“Although states have adopted a wide range of restrictions so far this year, much of the attention has focused on four areas: waiting periods, abortions after the first trimester, medication abortion and TRAP provisions. Even though most action on these issues follows recent trends, some states have charted some new directions that may well serve as models for other states going forward.”
