What's New?

  • NEW! Check out Rewire.News‘ 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.

  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) vetoed HB 258, which would have prohibited doctors from performing abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Instead, Kasich signed SB 145, which bans the most common method of second-trimester abortion.

  • Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) vetoed SB 1198, which would have made permanent a 2012 telemedicine ban on prescribing medication abortion. Therefore, the ban expired on December 31, 2018.
