The Center for Reproductive Rights recently released a press statement regarding a report issued by the Guttmacher Institute on legislation supporting abortion restrictions. The report documents new enactments by state legislatures making it more difficult for women to obtain abortions and for clinics to keep their doors open. The Center’s statement reports nearly 57% of women in the U.S. live in a state characterized as “hostile” or “extremely hostile” towards reproductive rights. The Center calls on local, state, and federal systems to respect the rights of women to reproductive integrity and to support the Women’s Health Protection Act in Congress.
