States Pile-On Abortion Restrictions

In Arkansas this week, the State Senate passed a bill that would ban almost all abortions. Within a month, women in Arkansas could be prevented from receiving abortion care, no matter what their circumstances.

In North Dakota, the legislature is poised to vote on set of bills that aim to ban abortion, close down women's health centers, and could prevent couples from using in-vitro fertilization to build their family. The Senate is expected to vote on those bills next week.

In Mississippi and Alabama and several other states, legislators are playing at the same game – introducing legislation that takes away a woman’s ability to have all options open to her.
