WTF? An Abortion Bounty Law in 2021?

With one of the most extreme abortion bans this country has ever seen now in effect, politicians, neighbors, and even complete strangers can sue anyone who helps a person access an abortion in Texas after six weeks. This is a full-scale assault on abortion access.

Gynotician of the Week: House Speaker Thom Tillis

Even before he assumed the role of House Speaker, Thom Tillis made clear that limiting a woman’s right to make her own personal medical decisions was a top priority.

Why I Got Arrested for Women's Health

You've seen the news: When they thought no one was looking last week, state senators in North Carolina tucked several dangerous attacks on women's health into an unrelated bill.

Rick Perry and his allies have lit a fuse in Texas. They've slashed funding for women's health and cut 130,000 women off from their only source of care. Now, they're pushing their dangerous agenda to a new extreme — threatening to shut down dozens of health centers, denying even more women access to basic care and ending access to safe and legal abortion in most of the state.

Gynotician of the Week: Ohio Governor John Kasich

Anti-women’s health politicians in states like Texas, North Carolina, and Wisconsin continue to try to chip away at women’s health care, but Ohio Governor John Kasich outshone them all this week by signing a budget that included a number of provisions designed to restrict women’s health and rights.
