I like you so much better when you're naked


Just released Guttmacher Institute analysis shows that the year of 2012 will likely have just as many (and possibly more) state abortion restriction as 2011, which was a record number. Some findings from its mid-year report:
In the first half of 2012, states have enacted 39 new restrictions on access to abortion
14 of the new restrictions have been enacted in just three states—Arizona, Louisiana and South Dakota
55% of women of reproductive age in the United States live in one of the 26 states considered hostile to abortion
Comparing 2012 from 2011, a lower proportion of restrictions passed by one legislative body have become law—30% of  restrictions passed by one chamber so far this year have been enacted, which is much lower than the 51% signed into law by this point in 2011
