kristina marusic – Almost 400 Anti-Abortion Bills Were Introduced In The U.S. In 2015

Choosing whether or not to have children is a constitutional right for women in the U.S. Since anti-choice activists can’t undo the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that recognized that fact, they’ve partnered with lawmakers across the country in their efforts to gradually chip away at that right on a state-by-state level — with an alarming rate of aggressiveness in 2015.

 According to a new report from the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), nearly 400 bills aimed at shutting down abortion clinics or making it extremely difficult for women to obtain abortion care have been introduced across the country in 2015. Forty-seven of them have already been passed.
