Unlike in recent years, when the thrust of legislative activity was on regulating abortion, this year legislators seem to be focusing on banning abortion outright.
Arkansas, North Dakota and Kansas pass strict anti-abortion laws, and Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield floats a radical welfare plan.
On this episode of Reality Cast, I’ll be talking to Alison McCullouch about abortion laws in New Zealand. North Dakota’s governor signs a bunch of terrible anti-choice legislation, and anti-gay folks start getting uglier.
The governor believes constitutional rights should be reexamined, and one activist believes they should up for public input. But should they?
If we want all people to have access to care across the United States, we must create newsworthy initiatives calling for an expansion rather than a retraction of coverage, and we must call upon our elected representatives to do the same.
Anti-choice North Dakota lawmakers may be ready to ban abortion and possibly some forms of birth control, but even they recognize that blocking federal money for a sex ed program serving at-risk teens may be going too far.
If you really want there to be fewer abortions, you need there to be fewer unintended pregnancies, right? And yet anti-choice lawmakers from the state are trying to end a sex-ed program for at-risk youth.
As news spreads that the most devastating abortion laws in the nation were signed in North Dakota, the state’s only abortion clinic is getting financial support, while the governor is receiving spiritual “attaboys.”
Eager to move on to the court challenges that inevitably await, Gov. Dalrymple signs multiple bills that will provoke court challenges to Roe v. Wade.
If the state’s one abortion clinic can’t continue to operate, it doesn’t matter if abortion is banned at 20 weeks, at six weeks, or at the moment of conception. The TRAP law will mean the end of abortion access in North Dakota.
