What 11 New Anti-Choice Governors Mean For Women

NARAL Blog for Choice: The Dangers of Anti-Choice Governors, by Thomas:

The 2010 elections that put anti-choice politicians in control of the U.S. House of Representatives also had dire consequences for the states. Just this month, 11 new anti-choice governors took over in Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Plus, there are also 15 states with fully anti-choice governments (both a majority of the legislature and the governor are anti-choice).
Many of these politicians campaigned on a platform of creating jobs and limiting government in our lives. But now that they're in office, they've switched gears and made attacking a woman's right to choose a top priority. It's only January, and already we're seeing the damage that the new anti-choice governors can do. . . .
