Pramila Jayapal Told The Story Of Her Abortion In New NYT Op-Ed
Jayapal’s column comes on the heels of an unprecedented number of abortion restrictions or bans being passed at the state level. According to the
Guttmacher Institute, 378 abortion restrictions were introduced between January 1 and May 20 of this year alone. Since January,
more than a dozen states have introduced abortion bans once a
“fetal heartbeat,” i.e. embryonic pulsing, is detected, and five states have signed them into law. The fate of
Missouri’s last abortion clinic is precarious, which would make it the first state without one.
