The War on Women: the Infographic
2011 was an intense year of attacks on women's freedom and privacy.
Anti-choice politicians ignored the American people's call to focus on jobs and the economy, and instead made attacking a woman's right to make personal, private medical decisions one of their "highest legislative priorities."
The U.S. House of Representatives held more choice-related votes in 2011 than in any year since 2000, and states enacted 69 anti-choice measures--one shy of the record number, 70, established in 1999.
Just how bad was 2011 for attacks on women? We thought we'd give you the rundown on the year in the form of an infographic--but be warned: this info is indeed graphic.
What's worse, the very same politicians behind the War on Women are ready to resume the attacks here in Washington, D.C. and in state legislatures throughout the country.
It's up to us to spread the word--right now--about the War on Women. The more people who know about all the ways that politicians in Congress and the states interfered in women's personal, private health-care decisions in 2011, the better chance we have of stopping these attacks in 2012.
Do you think that it's wrong for politicians to interfere in women's personal, private medical decisions?
