What got my attention was this paragraph:
The licensing law is part of an unprecedented surge of anti-abortion legislation that has advanced through Republican-controlled legislatures in many states. Collectively, the measures create an array of new obstacles -- legal, financial and psychological -- for women seeking abortions and doctors performing them.
This is a prime example of how the media promotes it's far-left agenda.
Notice the verbiage.
"Anti-abortion" legislation. It is always anti-abortion, not pro-life. Conversely, it is never pro-abortion it's pro-choice.
The measures create an "array of new obstacles". The legislation is not intended to save the life of unborn children. It's not intended to regulate a health care facility to be sure women are provided safe abortions, something all on the left are always blathering on about. We need to keep abortion legal so women do not have to go to back alleys for abortions. Isn't this legislation attempting to regulate the practice to keep it safe? No, according to the AP it is not attempting to make the abortion safe for the women or save the life of the child, it's intended to block women from exercising a "choice" or "family planning".
Then there is the "psychological" obstacles. How exactly is the AP determining that the bills being passed are damaging women psychologically? What measure did they use to determine this? Without a way to determine it definitively it becomes an opinion.
Nothing new here, just venting.
