Abortion providers have faced an onslaught of violence and threats at the hands of anti-abortion extremists in the past 30 years. More than 4,000 acts of violence have been aimed at abortion clinics nationwide since 1977. In response to violence against abortion providers and the women they serve, some pro-choice advocates have turned to state legislatures for solutions.
