The list goes on...

Mandatory parental notification laws (Nebraska and Oklahoma), forcing women seeking abortions to view an ultrasound and listen to a detailed description of the fetus (Oklahoma), banning abortion coverage within public insurance exchanges (Arizona), requiring waiting periods prior to an abortion (Nebraska and Oklahoma). The list of recent anti-choice legislation on the state level goes on, with legislation also currently being discussed in Alaska and North Dakota.

Anti-choicers call these pieces of legislation, which have been popping up over the last couple of months all over the US, the "natural progression" of the law.

We have to respectfully disagree.

Not only do these laws threaten a woman's right to privacy, but they are severely detrimental to the safety of thousands of women and teenagers. It takes the control over her body away from her and gives it to the respective state for which they live.
