If it seems to you that the assault on reproductive rights has accelerated in the past year, you are not mistaken. The Center for Reproductive Rights (The Center) notes that “in 2011 alone, legislatures across the U.S. passed more than 60 laws undermining reproductive rights protected by the U.S. Constitution, choking off access to critical reproductive health services and making rights that exist on paper increasingly difficult to exercise in reality.” The Center is the only global legal advocacy organization dedicated exclusively to the establishment, protection, and advancement of reproductive rights in constitutional and international law.
