"Care in Chaos"

What's New?

  • NEW! Check out Rewire‘s focus on religious imposition laws. These laws are designed to shield private individuals and businesses from complying with nondiscrimination laws based on a religious objection to that service.

  • Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed SB 1180, prohibiting abortion after a fetus has reached viability and requiring viability testing at 20 weeks gestation.

  • Montana Gov. Steve Bullock vetoed SB 282, which would have prohibited abortion when a fetus is viable, and SB 329, which would have prohibited abortion at 20 weeks gestation.

  • Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed HF 809, which would have prohibited state funding of abortion, and HF 812, which would have imposed new fees, regulations, and procedures for abortion clinics.

  • Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad signed SF 471, which prohibits abortion at 20 weeks gestation and requires a 72-hour waiting period. The law is effective immediately. The Iowa Supreme Court issued a temporary injunction on the 72-hour waiting period.

  • Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed HB 1111, which requires words in Tennessee law to be given their “natural and ordinary meaning.”

  • Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed HB 24, making Alabama the second state this year to allow adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ couples.

  • Sixteen states (Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New York, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming) have filed bills prohibiting transgender individuals from using public accommodations consistent with their gender identity.

  • Over 325 bills designed to restrict access to reproductive health care have been filed for the 2017 legislative session.

Rewire Legislative Tracker is an easily searchable database of the laws, people, organizations, and litigation involved in sexual and reproductive health and justice in the United States, as well as the connections among them. Primarily focused on the anti-choice universe, the database provides factual summaries of key topics, lawsuits, and laws. It is available for use by the public with credit to Rewire.

Rewire Legislative Tracker makes use of data from the Sunlight Foundation’s Open States project for legislature counts and legislator information.
