Chart of the Day

This chart, courtesy of ThinkProgress, perfectly demonstrates the consequences of having 39 out of 50 states legislatively controlled by Republicans.

Lawmakers across the nation pursued a record number of reproductive health and rights-related provisions in 2011, a new report from the Guttmacher Institute finds, enacting 135 measures in 36 states — “an increase from the 89 enacted in 2010 and the 77 enacted in 2009.” Sixty-eight percent of the provisions — 92 in 24 states — restricted access to abortion services.

And it isn't Democrats that are pushing these laws.

Both sides are the same though, right?
