* Some recent wins for abortion rights include an August 25 Superior Court of Arizona decision that struck down a Maricopa jail policy denying inmates access to safe and timely abortions. On September 12 Federal District Court Judge Denise Page Hood struck down the Legal Birth Definition Act, Michigan's third anti-abortion legislation in recent years. And, on September 16, U.S. District Judge Nanette Laughery blocked enforcement of a new Missouri law that would have put excessive restrictions on abortion providers. However, all information regarding emergency contraception has been omitted by the U.S. Department of Justice from its first-ever national protocol for treating sexual assault survivors.
