How is your state doing?
I was perusing through some articles (as usual over at NPR) and I came across this article, which did not make me happy at all. I read through it and it looks like last year was a great year to be anti-choice. The thing about the heartbeat really went off the deep end. I mean, what does the heart have to do with personhood (and I don't even want to talk about personhood amendments now)? Why not elbows? Or nostrils? But none of this is new, and most of it wasn't even news to me. What did catch my eye was the American's United for Life Life List. It is a list ranking states in how much they restrict women's reproductive freedom. Those that restrict it the most, as you can see, are labeled: Best States. Those that restrict it least: Worst States. No qualification to that at all, just best and worst. Screw that. My home state of Indiana sadly scored a "Most Improved Over 2011". *Sigh*
