Since 1993, at least eight abortion providers, including four doctors have been killed. And there have been over 200 arsons and bombings against reproductive healthcare clinics since 1977.<br /> <br /> Why is a medical procedure being reframed as a deeply divisive moral issue in the US?<br /> <br /> Fault Lines travels to California to meet the next generation of frontline troops fighting to ban abortion, and to Ohio and Tennessee to investigate what lies behind the so-called war on women.<br /> <br /> "It [Ohio's heartbeat bill] really only sees a woman as a carrier and she has no other right beyond her ability to reproduce. One of the reasons that these abortion bills are so dangerous is because it chips away at the notion of personal liberty, your right. And what can be more fundamental to your personal liberty than being able to control your own body ....<br /> <br /> Women died trying to get back-alley abortions. Do we want to get back to that in the land of opportunities, the land of freedom? When did it become a sin and a shame to be a woman in this country? But that is what is happening in the 21st century in many states across this country and also in our congress and it's just absolutely shameful to me."<br /> <br /> Nina Turner, Ohio state senator Republicans try to limit damage over rape remark tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2012-08-21:2182797:Video:2033915 2012-08-21T16:09:50.722Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte Senior Republicans are rushing to distance themselves from remarks made by Congressman Todd Akin in a television interview as he explained his views on abortion.<br></br> <br></br> His reference to “legitimate rape” has sparked a furious reaction in the US.<br></br> <br></br> He was asked by an interviewer: “Are there any circumstances in your mind in which abortion should be legal?“<br></br> <br></br> Todd Akin replied: “It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare.

If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something, you know, I think there should be some punishment but the punishment ought to be for the rapist, not attacking the child.”<br /> <br /> The ensuing row has forced Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to denounce Akin’s views and clarify his campaign’s abortion stance at a time when he would prefer to focus on the economy.<br /> <br /> It has also highlighted a split between him and his newly-announced running mate Paul Ryan, who, unlike Romney, privately opposes abortion in the case of rape.
