Abortion Foes Advance Cause at State Level

John Leland writes for the New York Times, “In a flurry of activity last week, Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi signed a bill barring insurers from covering abortion in the new insurance exchanges called for under the federal health care overhaul, and the Oklahoma Legislature overrode a veto by Gov. Brad Henry of a bill requiring doctors who perform abortions to answer 38 questions about each procedure, including the women’s reasons for ending their pregnancies. It was the third abortion measure this session on which the Legislature overrode a veto by Mr. Henry.”
