In Just Three Months, States Proposed An Astonishing 694 Provisions About Reproduction

In Just Three Months, States Proposed An Astonishing 694 Provisions About Reproduction | Liberal Politics | Scoop.it
In the first quarter of 2013, states have proposed 694 provisions related to a woman’s body, how she gets pregnant, or how she chooses to end that pregnancy.

 new report released on Thursday by the Guttmacher Institute takes a comprehensive look at how the War on Women has continued past the election cycle and into 2013. It shows that the new legislatures across the country are still very much dedicated to restricting sex education, availability of medication, and abortion access for women. Indeed, 47 percent of the 694 provisions were directly related to abortion:

During the first three months of 2013, legislators in 14 states introduced provisions seeking to ban abortion prior to viability. These bans fall into three categories: measures that would prohibit all abortions, those that would ban abortions after a specified point during the first trimester of pregnancy and those that would block abortions at 20 weeks after fertilization (the equivalent of 22 weeks after the woman’s last menstrual period, the conventional method physicians use to measure pregnancy). All of these proposals are in direct violation of U.S. Supreme Court decisions.

Legislators in 10 states have introduced proposals that would ban all, or nearly all, abortions. In eight states (AL, IA, MS, ND, OK, SC, VA and WA), legislators have proposed defining “personhood” as beginning at conception; if adopted, these measures would ban most, if not all, abortions.

Seven states are edging closer to achieving full approval for laws that would reduce or essentially eliminate abortion access.

Enforcing unconstitutional abortion laws isn’t just a threat to women’s rights — it’s also costly to the states caught up in legal battles. Last year, Kansas spent $628,000 defending its unconstitutional abortion restrictions. North Dakota is in the middle of spending $400,000 to defend its ban, and Arkansas is set to do the same.

What War on Women?

Just because Republicans nationwide propose 694 different laws to restrict/change women's rights, why would anyone think they have a problem with rights women currently have?

Man this liberal, mainstream media and their facts... 

mcmerb's comment, July 6, 2013 10:21 PM
Why, indeed? Not like they're trying to control women and their productive rights or anything. Obviously, there is nothing they'd rather work on . . . such as lack of jobs - they very thing they give lip service to caring about.
The Ryno's comment, July 9, 2013 4:31 PM
Amazing how they pretend to care about America, but instead only proved to care about a) indicting Obama in court of public opinion b) passing abortion laws c) protecting profits of top 1% and d) rigging elections

What Happens When Students Are Simply Free To Learn?

What Happens When Students Are Simply Free To Learn? | Liberal Politics | Scoop.it

"If you could learn about anything, what would you choose to learn? If you gave this freedom to your students, what would they choose?... According to Katherine von Jan, in her Huffington Post article, Pursue Passion: Demand Google 20% Time at School,  'every Google employee spend 20% of their time (the equivalent of a full work day each week) working on ideas and projects that interest that employee. They are encouraged to explore anything other than their normal day-to-day job. As a result, 50% of all Google’s products by 2009 originated from the 20% free time, including Gmail. Real breakthrough happens when we are free from others’ expectations and driven by individual passion'.”
