Last year was a productive one for pro-life state legislators and governors, although they had to continue to operate within Supreme Court constrictions. More than 65 new laws in 27 states will save lives, but larger advances require judicial and cultural change.

See the E-zine or PDF version of this issue to view the symbols and meanings for this chart.
