You’re Not Going to Believe This!

State Proposals Graphic New

During a year of delayed budget deals, government shutdowns and a disastrous health care rollout, in 2013, a vocal but organized minority has put forth over 320 bills pushing big-government interference in the personal decisions of families. While we know that real Republicans, like Senator Susan Collins of Maine and Pennsylvania Congressman Charlie Dent, remain focused on restoring America’s economy and protecting individual rights; so-called conservatives across the country continue their obsession with divisive social issues, giving political fodder to the cry of a “war on women.”

Are you wondering if this extremist agenda will really have an effect on you? Wonder no longer. Less than 2% of America’s population lives in the total 3 states where no anti-choice legislation was filed. That’s right, 47 states have considered anti-choice legislation this year. But even for you lucky 2%: you will get caught up in the federal government attacks as well – in short, WE ARE ALL AFFECTED. Extremists have introduced literally hundreds of anti-choice measures that take aim at personal rights using every available means. From posturing that the size of a clinic’s sinks and doorways somehow affects a woman’s health, to forcing women to undergo (and pay for) unwanted ultrasounds – the list below lets you see each and every one of the excessive and intrusive laws happening right in your back yard.

There is good news, however. What the extremists may not have counted on is Americans like you – commonsense Mainstream Republicans and real Republican elected leaders across the country taking a stand and fighting back. As the attacks increase, we’ve witnessed more and more mainstream Republicans coming forward and speaking out in defense of family planning services and personal freedom. Click here to see what some of these real Republicans had to say. Click here to see what some of these real Republicans had to say and keep scrolling to see what’s happening in your state.
