Chris Christie Is Now Waging 23 Court Battles to Keep State Documents Secret — On his first day as governor of New Jersey, Republican Chris Christie promised "a new era of accountability and transparency." But five years later, local reporters and watchdog groups accuse Christie's administration of making unprecedented efforts to keep public records a secret.

The Strict Abortion Ban that Abortion Foes Fear — Last month, a Kansas Republican promised that his state House committee would consider a bill banning abortions after the fetus has a detectable heartbeat-around the sixth week of development. The legislator, Steve Brunk, said he is confident the measure will pass in the GOP-controlled legislature. And Gov.

The Obama Administration Pledged to Fix the Asylum System for Women. Six Years Later… — I meet Melanie, 23, at the DC office of the immigration attorney who's been handling her quest for for asylum here in the US. She is zaftig and chic. Her fingernails, big enamel earrings, and the tips of her afro are all the same brilliant shade of scarlet.

"20-Week Bans Are Devastating for Women Like Me" — A top priority for the new Republican Congress is passing a new law banning abortions after a fetus is 20 weeks old. But on Wednesday, GOP women concerned about the party's image managed to delay the vote. The bill, however, is by no means dead.

The Secret History of the GOP's New Abortion Ban — Just hours after the newly Republican Congress was sworn in on January 6, Reps. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) introduced a bill that would ban nearly all abortions after a fetus is 20 weeks old.

The Group Behind America's Biggest Anti-Abortion March Now Says Birth Control Causes Abortions — Each year on January 22-the anniversary of the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v. Wade-the March for Life draws thousands of protesters to Washington, DC, for what organizers bill as "world's largest anti-abortion event." But this year, there's an added wrinkle: Organizers of the march have spent the past six months arguing that birth control pills are a form of abortion.

The War on Reproductive Rights Will Get a Lot Uglier Next Year — After a record-shattering year in 2013, the pace of harsh anti-abortion bills introduced in 2014 slowed down. Elections cut short the legislative calendar in many states, and the general assemblies in Texas and North Dakota, two anti-abortion heavyweights, didn't meet. But brace yourself for 2015.

This GOP Lawmaker Wants a Woman to Get Permission From the Father Before Having an Abortion — A Missouri Republican is pushing a bill that would allow a man who gets a woman pregnant to stop her from having an abortion. The measure would force a woman who wants an abortion to obtain written permission from the father first-unless she was the victim of "legitimate rape."

Catholic Church Argues It Doesn't Have to Show Up in Court Because Religious Freedom — When Emily Herx first took time off work for in vitro fertilization treatment, her boss offered what sounded like words of support: "You are in my prayers." Soon those words took on a more sinister meaning. The Indiana grade school where Herx was teaching English was Catholic.

Tennessee Voters Just Made It Easier To Restrict Abortion-And the GOP Isn't Wasting Any Time. — For years, as lawmakers in other conservative states passed onerous restrictions designed to limit abortion access, deep-red Tennessee stood out as an exception-because the state's constitution forbade many of the harshest anti-abortion measures. But that changed on Election Day.
