The war on women continues. The ACA, which is already helping women, is under constant attack. In the last three years, 205 pieces of legislation were passed nationwide to limit women's access to health care, reproductive and family planning services.

And health care clinics are closing due to funding cuts and restrictive legislation, specifically aimed at reproductive services.
