Rachel Maddow: the anti-abortion movement is succeeding as women in the South run out of reproductive health options

Rachel Maddow reported on a new law signed by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal that imposes restrictions on abortion providers that will likely force almost every clinic in the state to close. It also puts abortion providers at risk by publishing the names and addresses of all doctors who perform abortions in the state.

This is no isolated instance either as this same language has been used in new laws in Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, and elsewhere.

“State by state, across the American South, that is how the anti-abortion movement is succeeding: by making it so an American woman who wants to have a legal abortion really has nowhere to go.”

Do more than watch: fight back by getting involved with NARAL Pro-Choice America.
