Women get short shrift from country's leaders

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. A Republican-led committee just passed a bill that would re-traumatize rape victims who get abortions by requiring them to report the details of their assaults to the IRS. And health care clinics are closing due to funding cuts and restrictive legislation, specifically aimed at reproductive services.
