If it weren’t for the serious life-altering implications of the anti-abortion bills passed this year all over the country, it would be downright comical. From legislators in North Carolina tacking abortion legislation onto a motorcycle safety bill, to politicians in Texas insisting that shutting down abortion clinics because of the size of their parking lots is really an attempt to protect women’s health, the lengths politicians have gone to deny women their basic constitutional rights is nearly laughable. Politicians must think we’re stupid.
But don’t be fooled. Just because these tactics and regulations are outlandish does not mean they are harmless. Over 300 regulations have been introduced this year alone. North Dakota passed the most extreme ban in the country. Texas passed a law that threatens to shut down most clinics in the state. And Kansas passed a sweeping anti-abortion bill that restricts access to care in many ways.
We are fighting back and we need your help. Join us to keep politicians out of our private health care decisions.
