States Enact Record Number of Abortion Restrictions in First Half of 2011

Today the Guttmacher Institute released a new report chronicling the methods by which different states are limiting access to both abortion and family planning services. Our midwest neighbor Wisconsin has unfortunately joined Kansas, North Carolina and Indiana as yet another state whose budget has been slashed so as to limit reproductive health care. The recently adopted state budget eliminates $1 million in state and federal funding to nine Planned Parenthood health centers in small communities.

"It's a shame some political personal beliefs are taking away resources that make sure women in Wisconsin have access to basic family planning health care," stated Amanda Harrington, a spokesperson from Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.
