Jul 12, 2013 — During the first half of 2013, more than a dozen states enacted 45 separate provisions restricting access to abortion. High-profile battles continue in Texas and North Carolina. The restrictions range from bans to stricter regulations of clinics.
Jul 12, 2012 — There were 39 laws restricting abortion enacted in the first half of 2012. While that's less than half the 80 put in place during the first half of last year, the number of laws already on the books for 2012 is higher than any other year before 2011.
