For the past year, conservative politicians and citizens have been strategically pushing to limit women's access to abortive services. Thus far they have tried to redefine rape, shut down clinics, discredit practioners, defund Planned Parenthood and now that are trying to create bans on insurance coverage for abortions.
I had no idea that this was going on until it was borught to my attention by this article from the ACLU. Im not sure what is hoped to be accomplished by this latest assault on women's reproductive rights but it's one more thing for you to be concerned about.
At this point, you know what you need to do. Call and write your representatives, let them know where you stand on the issue, even if it's against my personal views.
Since I didn't know about this, I figure you didn't either. Luckily, the ACLU also provided us with an easy-to-understand guide of current regulations in all 50 states. I've made a prettier one and embedded it below. Enjoy.
