2012 Legislative Scorecard

The OCRJ Legislative Scorecard shows the voting record of legislators who authored or co-authored bills in 2011-2012 that restricted or prohibited women's reproductive rights. The names are limited to legislators who have opponents in the primary or general election. We have also provided the legislators' district numbers.

The bills generally focus on intimidating physicians and other medical personnel, abortion clinics themselves, and pregnant women. The bills also make it more difficult for men and women to have full choices in all areas of their family planning from contraception to restricting options surrounding the general health of the women. Many of the bills would prohibit invitro fertilization as we know it today.

There is also a short description of each bill at the bottom of the scorecard. One state legislator is now running for the U.S. Congress and is included.
