Three's a Crowd

By Becca Cadoff, Reproductive Freedom Project at 4:18pm

Over the weekend extremist politicians continued their onslaught on restricting abortion care. What happened? Well, the saying goes "three's a crowd," and when it comes to interfering in personal decisions best left to a woman, her doctor and her family, that's especially true.

  • On Friday, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed a sweeping anti-abortion bill that threatens women's access to care in a multitude of ways.
  • Due to onerous regulations approved last week by the Virginia Board of Health, Hillcrest Clinic was forced on Saturday to shut its doors to women seeking care.
  • A Thursday debate about an abortion bill in the Florida House of Representatives became so insulting that five Representatives had to leave the debate.

Three is, indeed, a crowd – especially when our privacy and our health are at stake. Tell your elected officials to leave us alone.
