NYTimes- Where Abortion Rights are Disappearing

23 Oct

I didn’t see this op-ed in the New York Times last month, but one month later it is worth a read.

Be sure to check out the map, which illustrates which states have imposed the greatest restrictions to accessing an abortion.  As the author points out, “One clear lesson of this year’s skyrocketing number of new state laws is that those who care about keeping the procedure safe, legal and accessible need to raise their voices as loudly and effectively as those on the other side. If they don’t do so, and quickly, the number of harmful restrictions will continue to balloon, at a rising cost to women’s lives, health and equality.”
