Roundup: Ryan-DeLauro Abortion Reduction Bill to Be Re-introduced Today


Ryan-DeLauro Bill to Be Re-introduced Today Rep. Rosa DeLauro, a Democrat from Connecticut who favors abortion rights, and
Rep. Tim Ryan, a Democrat from Ohio who opposes them, will unveil the
"Preventing Unintended Pregnancies, Reducing the Need for Abortion and
Supporting Parents Act" at a Washington press conference today, a re-introduction of their bill first proposed in 2006. The
measure aims to reduce the number of abortions in the U.S. by providing
greater government support for pregnant women and their families and
expanding teen pregnancy prevention programs, among a host of other
proposals.

Group Asks Justice Department to Protect Abortion Clinics An abortion-rights group said Wednesday that doctors and clinics
that perform abortions in six states "are routinely targeted" for legal
and physical harassment, including death threats, and called on the
Justice Department to do more
to protect clinic workers. In a
report, the Center for Reproductive Rights said that women seeking to
terminate pregnancies in those states face a dwindling supply of
providers as threats and intimidation take their toll.
