Investigation to Show Harassment, Legal Restrictions Impose Severe Obstacles for Abortion Providers and Women Seeking Abortions

NEW YORK, July 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Next week, the Center for Reproductive Rights will release the results of an investigation of abortion clinics in six states demonstrating that attacks, harassment, discriminatory legal restrictions and stigma are causing a shortage of abortion facilities and providers, severely limiting women's reproductive rights. The report will be released at a briefing for members of Congress, staff and media on Wednesday, July 22, at 12:30 p.m. in room HC-8 of the U.S. Capitol.

The report -- which studied clinics in Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and Texas -- calls for urgent action by governments at all levels, law enforcement, the medical community and the public to recognize abortion providers as human rights defenders who protect women's fundamental rights.
