False Witnesses

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.

  • Arizona passed SB 1439, allowing health-care providers to refuse to participate in any end-of-life treatment which violates their conscience.

  • Ohio’s 20-week abortion ban, SB 127, took effect on March 14, 2017.

  • South Dakota Gov. Daugaard signed SB 149, allowing adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ parents.

  • Over 300 bills designed to restrict access to reproductive health care have been filed for the 2017 legislative session.

  • Fifteen states (Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, 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.

  • Utah’s Republican-majority house passed pseudoscience legislation, HB 141, claiming it’s possible to “reverse” a medication abortion.

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.
