If you're a conservative strongly opposed to abortion, shouldn't you want to give all the help you can to women who want to bring their children into the world? In particular, wouldn't you hope they'd get the proper medical attention during and after their pregnancy? This would seem a safe assumption, which is why it ought to be astonishing that conservatives are positively obsessed with trashing the Affordable Care Act's regulation requiring insurance policies to include maternity coverage.

Has abortion provider Steven Brigham opened a new clinic in Pennsylvania, even though the state has barred him from doing so, and even though abortion clinics are being scrutinized under a recently enacted state law? His critics think so. The new clinic, Integrity Family Health, is on Bustleton Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. The state Department of Health did an initial inspection and issued a permit, called a registration, eight weeks ago, then added the facility to its online list of abortion clinics in the Keystone State.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Republican Steve Lonegan - as well as allied Super PACs - are ratcheting up personal attacks in the special U.S. Senate race in New Jersey, seemingly competing to denounce the other as too radical for his own party. On Friday, the conservative Super PAC American Commitment Action Fund joined with the antiabortion Susan B. Anthony List to release a new ad calling Booker's stance on abortion "too extreme" even among Democrats. Noting Booker's role on the Democratic National Convention's platform committee last year, the ad accuses Booker of supporting "taxpayer-funded" abortions and of opposing any restrictions on or safety regulations for the procedure.

A federal judge in North Dakota on Monday temporarily blocked the state's law banning abortions as early as six weeks after fertilization, calling the legislation "clearly unconstitutional. " The preliminary injunction from U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland means that the nation's most restrictive abortion law, which would bar abortions as soon as a fetal heartbeat is detectable, will not take effect Aug. 1 as planned. The ruling also suggests that, even as states across the country enact measures limiting abortion access, some of the laws may never take effect because of stiff legal challenges.

AUSTIN, Texas - Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed sweeping new abortion restrictions on Thursday that could shutter most of the state's clinics that provide the procedure, a final step for the Republican-backed measure after weeks of sometimes raucous protests at the state Capitol. Supporters credited God's will and prayer as the governor signed the legislation, with protesters' chants of "Shame! Shame! Shame!" echoing from the hallway. Opponents have vowed to fight the law, though no court challenges were immediately filed.

ATLANTA - With no immediate hope of overturning the Supreme Court's decision legalizing abortion, Republicans around the country are pushing legislation to restrict the procedure, and Democrats say they'll make the GOP pay in coming elections. From statehouses to Congress, Republicans have advanced a range of ideas: banning nearly all abortions beyond the 20th week after conception; making abortion clinics follow regulations for surgical care; mandating that clinic physicians have admitting privileges at local hospitals; requiring women to get ultrasounds before terminating a pregnancy.

AUSTIN, Texas - Republican lawmakers passed a bill that would give Texas some of the nation's most restrictive abortion laws and force most of its clinics to close, leading Democrats to promise a fight over the contentious measure in the courts and at the ballot box. More than 2,000 demonstrators filled the Capitol building in Austin to voice their opposition to the bill, including six protesters who were dragged out of the Senate chamber by state troopers...

TRENTON - Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis was filibustering an antiabortion bill on the floor of that state's legislature last month when her counterpart in New Jersey called her office. Barbara Buono, a Democratic state senator running against Republican Gov. Christie, tweeted a picture of herself calling Davis' office to send a message that she was "proud of her stand for women. " That contrasts with what happened three days later, when Christie's office issued a Friday news release to announce that he had quietly vetoed nearly $7.5 million in funding for family-planning services.

AUSTIN, Texas - Democrats in the Texas Senate on Friday questioned whether proposed abortion restrictions are constitutional and whether they would make it more difficult for women in the state to obtain health care. Democrats grilled the Republican author of a bill that has prompted fervent demonstrations and put Texas at the center of the nation's abortion debate. Following Friday's debate, the Senate was scheduled to vote on the tough abortion restrictions and could send the bill to Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who has said he will sign it. As senators debated, they could clearly hear hundreds of protesters outside of the chamber in the Capitol rotunda cheering, chanting, and singing, "We're not going to take it anymore.
