"This week, Utah's governor signed a first-of-its-kind antiabortion bill. It requires doctors to administer anesthesia to women seeking abortions at the 20th week of pregnancy or after. In some ways, however, the new law is just the most recent example of a kind of antiabortion legislation taking shape in red states across the country. The law adopts medical language to describe its goals, despite the fact that many physicians dispute the medical claims behind it. Similarly, Florida passed a law in March that, supporters say, intends to make abortions safer, but which abortion-rights advocates counter is essentially a backdoor attempt to restrict abortions."
