What war on women?
In the first quarter of 2013, states have proposed 694 provisions related to a woman’s body, how she gets pregnant, or how she chooses to end that pregnancy.
A new report released on Thursday by the Guttmacher Institute takes a comprehensive look at how the War on Women has continued past the election cycle and into 2013. It shows that the new legislatures across the country are still very much dedicated to restricting sex education, availability of medication, and abortion access for women. Indeed, 47 percent of the 694 provisions were directly related to abortion.
Six hundred and ninety four provisions related to women’s bodies. In three months. I believe I can say with confidence that Republican legislators did not remember to smile all 694 times they co-sponsored these measures.
I don’t know where they find the time to conduct the important business of laying off teachers and passing new tax cuts for corporations amid their crusade on the female body. 694 proposals to legislate vaginas in the span of 90 days must be exhausting.
