Previously I posted two must-watch videos here: Despite murder threats by anti-abortion extremists, new clinic aims to serve Kansas women.

Here are the next two from Rachel Maddow who clearly and urgently delineates the War on Women in states that are doing away with women's ability to access reproductive health services.

Sure, Roe v. Wade is still around, and women have a constitutional right to an abortion, but that doesn't mean conservatives in several states aren't making that nearly impossible, and defunct, by requiring clinics to do things clinics just cannot do.

Please watch all the segments we've made available in both posts. This is about as disturbing as it gets for women's rights as “illegal, violent, threatening behavior” and obstacles to medical programs continue under the protection of state laws. Harassing and intimidating easy female targets, hostility and scare tactics aimed at physicians and other personnel, are all working, although they are being bravely resisted and outmaneuvered when possible.

Clinics are closing, health services are disappearing, and women are being deprived of care as well as their rights.

Happy 40th, Roe:
