WHY: The last two years have seen an alarming trend in challenges to women's reproductive rights. In 2011, State legislatures introduced more than 1,100 anti-abortion provisions. Seven states either fully defunded or made moves toward defunding Planned Parenthood, which provides basic health care, contraception, breast cancer and STD screenings to millions of low-income women each year. On a federal level, Republicans in Congress used abortion and Planned Parenthood funding as a bargaining chip during budget negotiations and almost shut down the government in the process. They introduced mandatory ultrasound bills, tried to narrow the definition of rape to include only "forcible rape" and barred the District of Columbia from being able to use its own locally raised funds to help low-income women pay for abortions. In addition to witnessing dozens of ongoing state challenges, in what some have called a "war on women," 2012 saw a House hearing on birth control that did not include a single woman.
