"Republican Lawmakers To Kick Off New Year by Limiting Women's Reproductive Health," Tara Culp-Ressler, Center for American Progress' "Think Progress": "Republican legislators are already gearing up for the new abortion restrictions they hope to introduce this year," Culp-Ressler writes, noting that 2012 had the second-highest number of such measures ever enacted in a single year -- 19 states passing 43 bills. Culp-Ressler includes updates on how Indiana, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin are already "moving forward with their attempts to continue restricting women's right to choose" (Culp-Ressler, "Think Progress," Center for American Progress, 1/7).

What others are saying about attacks on reproductive rights in the states:
