More states restrict abortions; group says trend 'unparalleled'
Source: cnn

(CNN) -- As two states imposed the latest rounds of laws against abortion or its providers this week, a new study contends "hostility" toward abortion rights is on the rise in legislatures across the country, according to the Guttmacher Institute.

The trend has been buoyed by GOP victories in last year's elections, as well as how federal health care reform encouraged states to adopt their own laws regarding abortion coverage under plans offered by health exchanges, said Elizabeth Nash, public policy associate at the Guttmacher Institute, an advocacy group for abortion rights.

"It's pretty much an all-out, anti-abortion, free-for-all out there," Nash told CNN. "I've been doing this for almost 12 years now, so I feel like I have some historical sense. This year is just unlike any other year we've seen before."

1. Why do people expect red states to do anything to progress society?
I expect nothing from the Republicans and get nothing from them as well.

Add the success of states' anti-abortion laws passed in the last couple of years with the Republican sweep of statehouses last fall, "and you end up with a year that is unparalleled in what we have been seeing in regard to abortion restrictions," Nash said.

5. That's what happens when the Christian Right
takes over.

It would happen here, too, if Harper thought he could get away with it. He's using all the tried and true culture wars crap.

Harper is a born-again sort.

13. and restricting abortion is supposed to benefit society how?
it's not like making abortion legal caused humans to be an endangered species or caused our education system to get screwed over.
