MOTHER JONES: THE WAR ON WOMEN
"The War On Women is Over- And Women Lost" for Mother Jones Magazine
September/October 2015

While you weren't watching, conservatives fundamentally rewrote abortion laws. 

This is what 2015 looks like: Abortion providers struggle against overwhelming odds to stay open, while women "turn themselves into pretzels" to get to them, as one researcher put it. Activists have been calling it the "war on women." But the onslaught of new abortion restrictions has been so successful, so strategically designed, and so well coordinated that the war in many places has essentially been lost.
