Era of "Warm and Fuzzy-Sounding Abortion Laws" May Be Over

New Republic: Pro-Lifers Aren't Even Trying to Make Abortion Restrictions Sound Nice Anymore, by Molly Redden:

The year 2011 was “The Year of Abortion Restrictions,” when states enacted more new laws narrowing abortion rights than in any other year since Roe v. Wade. Part of this was the record number of statehouses captured by conservatives in the midterms. But in hindsight another reason for abortion foes’ success is clear: On their surface, many of them hardly seemed like abortion restrictions at all. . . .

The era of warm and fuzzy-sounding abortion laws, though, may be behind us. . . .
