So Many Abortion Restrictions, So Many Colors


Wonder how your state compares to others when it comes to access to abortion?  Remapping the Debate has put out a handy visual to let you know at a glance if you are a Vermont or an Indiana.

With these data visualizations, Remapping Debate identifies all of the many restrictions on abortion that have been legislated in various states…The chart… is organized simply by the total number of abortion restrictions in a state (coded by category, with more than one restriction possible in each category).On page 2, we present a tool by which the user can assign relative weights to the different categories of abortion restriction…. On page 3, by contrast, we present a tool by which the relative weight is assigned only to the category.

And, now that I have learned that Minnesota is more restrictive than Ohio, I need to go start contacting some local legislators.
