Let’s do a roundup! What states have proposed/enacted bills interfering with abortion rights since the 2010 elections?
States that had absurd anti-choice laws prior to the recent war on women:
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
States where women can obtain an abortion without jumping through (most) hoops:
- Maine (limits on public funding)
- Maryland (parental notification)
- Massachusetts (parental notification)
- Nevada (limits on public funding)
- New Jersey
- New York
Please reblog and add! I can’t possibly think of everything offhand…

From my post yesterday:
Over the course of 2011, legislators in all 50 states introduced more than 1,100 provisions related to reproductive health and rights. At the end of it all, states had adopted 135 new reproductive health provisions—a dramatic increase from the 89 enacted in 2010 and the 77 enacted in 2009.1 Fully 92 of the enacted provisions seek to restrict abortion, shattering the previous record of 34 abortion restrictions enacted in 2005 (see chart). A striking 68% of the reproductive health provisions from 2011 are abortion restrictions, compared with only 26% the year before.
