Essential Estrogen: Latest Battlefront in Abortion War: America's Midwest

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Squeezed between two powder kegs of anti-abortion activity, most
Iowans continue to follow presidential candidates around the state
without much knowledge or thought given to the battles being waged to
the east and south, just hours from their homes. "I tend to see both
ends of the spectrum as wrong," said Lori Cavanaugh as she waited
tables in a diner off Interstate 80 in eastern Iowa. "I don't know
what's going on in the neighboring states and, honestly, I don't care
much. I believe most of us are somewhere in the middle and that our
laws will continue to reflect that." Despite her initial response,
Cavanaugh said she was "shocked" to learn that the Missouri
Legislature passed a bill that reclassified Planned Parenthood and
other abortion clinics as "ambulatory surgical centers."
