Report: State lawmakers pass nearly 50 anti-abortion bills in 2015


State legislators approved nearly 50 bills restricting access to abortion over the last year, according to a report by the Center for Reproductive Rights.

A total of 16 states, mostly in the South, approved new legislation, ranging from new consent mandates to stricter protocols for abortion medications.

While not all became law — including at least 20 measures targeting Planned Parenthood — abortions rights activists are using the trend as a call to action.


I wonder which political party is passing these laws?

And which political party is actively opposing these laws?
