Abortion is a Medical Issue

At every protest I attend, I see elderly women with signs saying things like, "I can't believe I'm still fighting for this." Indeed. Some people believe that since abortion is legal, it's fully protected--but that couldn't be further from the truth. There are restrictive policies on abortions in many states that make them hard to obtain, with some states even mandating mandatory vaginal ultrasounds, extra medical exams and costs and other restrictions on women. So many states have lost funding, or even had abortion doctors murdered, that women have to drive hours to even find a clinic.
