Seventeen States Passed 43 Abortion Restrictions in 2013
The Washington Post - WonkBlog: Seventeen states made it harder to get an abortion this year , by Sarah Kliff:
The Guttmacher Institute, which tracks these things, on Monday released its regular look at the state of abortion regulations.
Taken together, these 17 states (full list here) have passed 43 abortion restrictions. That pales in comparison to the 80 such laws that had passed by this time in 2011 and is just slightly higher than restrictions enacted last year. It’s also a huge jump over the dozen or so laws that states would typically pass just a few years ago. . . .
