Who Decides? The Status of Women's Reproductive Rights in the United States

Welcome to the 24th edition of Who Decides? The Status of Women's Reproductive Rights in the United States. This report summarizes the state of women's access to reproductive-health care nationwide, including legislation enacted in 2014.

Who Decides? is the preeminent publication of choice-related state laws and legislative activity, and NARAL Pro-Choice America and NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation are the only organizations that provide up-to-the minute information about the enactment of new laws, and decisions handed down by state and federal courts related to reproductive rights. Our policy staff monitors state and federal activity on a daily basis, so please be sure to check our website for updates throughout the year.

Preface

  • From the President: Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America and NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, introduces the report.
