TERROR WORKS WHEN THE CAUSE IS JUST:

The War on Women Is About to Get a Whole Lot Worse : If you thought 2015 was bad for abortion rights, wait until you see 2016. (Nina Liss-Schultz, Jan. 4, 2016, Mother Jones)

Between the shooting deaths of three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood, the Supreme Court's decision to hear its first abortion-related case in nine years, and the more than 50 new abortion restriction laws enacted by state governments, abortion access was one of the most important issues of 2015. With presidential politics and ongoing legal challenges in the states, abortion rights will continue to be under fire in 2016.

"Last year's big events, like the Planned Parenthood videos and the Supreme Court case, have actually ginned up even more interest in restricting abortion," Elizabeth Nash, a senior state issues associate at the Guttmacher Institute, tells Mother Jones. "If it was possible, they've actually added more energy to decreasing abortion access."
