More Proof that States are Turning Against Women

Don’t believe us when we say that states are becoming increasingly hostile to women’s access to necessary reproductive health care? If legislation requiring mandatory vaginal ultrasounds and allowing employers to fire women for using birth control, aren’t proof enough, I’ve got more for you. The Guttmacher Institute just released a new study looking at how the abortion policy landscape at the state level has shifted over the last decade. The conclusion: more states are hostile to abortion rights now than in 2000. And more than half of American women of reproductive age live in those states.

Wondering what can be done aside from urging every woman of reproductive age to move to the states that are supportive of reproductive rights? Join our campaign and sign our petition – tell politicians that your health is not up for debate!
