Abortion is a hot button for most people, and no matter whether you think it’s an inalienable right or murder, or somewhere in between, you should know what’s happening in the US regarding the issue. A new report from the Guttmacher institute reports that 42 different states enacted more than 120 provisions regarding reproductive health in 2012 - and 92 abortion restrictions in 2011. Ranging from provision of educational materials, required ultrasounds and even requiring non-medically necessary trans-vaginal ultrasounds, states have been busy the last couple of years regarding how much say the state has in a woman’s decision to have an abortion. North Dakota has passed a law that prohibits abortion for gender or genetic defect of the fetus. And it looks like these conditions placed on abortion are continuing to gain in popularity.
