NAF Releases 2006 Legislative Report

Naf_logo_1 The National Abortion Federation has released its 2006 legislative report.  From the report:

The year began with the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Samuel Alito and continued with the introduction of sweeping abortion bans in several states, successful campaigns against restrictive state ballot initiatives, the enactment of protective measures for abortion providers, and the defeat of anti-abortion legislation on Capitol Hill. The year concluded with the fall 2006 elections, which yielded numerous victories for pro-choice candidates.
