A Brief History of Anti-Abortion Initiative and Referanda in our Region

Brief History of Abortion Related Initiatives and Referenda Since 1970, 35 measures have been waged in 16 states. Twenty-six were pushed by anti-choice activists. After Roe vs. Wade was passed, anti-choice advocates have tried to chip away at this decision by targeting state funding of abortions. 

There are a variety of anti-choice ballot measures in 2012. How does this impact voter turnout and influence candidate elections? Download our Brief History to find out more.
