(TalkingPointsMemo) Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday will introduced a bill that would prevent states from creating standards for abortion clinics that would make it more difficult for women to obtain an abortion, according to the Huffington Post.
The Women's Health Protection Act of 2013 would keep states from passing Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws -- legislation that makes it more expensive or harder to provide or obtain an abortion.
Bill co-sponsors include Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), and Reps. Marcia Fudge (D-OH), Judy Chu (D-CA) and Lois Frankel (D-FL).
