    [Cartoon: Garry Trudeau]
Newspapers across the US which usually run the Doonesbury comic strip have flat out refused to run his latest, which is about abortion. Others have decided to move him to the op-eds section instead.
Cartoonist Garry Trudeau "expressed dismay over the papers’ decision but was unrepentant, describing as ‘appalling’ and ‘insane’ Republican state moves on women’s healthcare.” The Guardian will be running him as usual.
But how truly bad is the ongoing onslaught on women’s reproductive rights? Here’s a round up of our recent op-eds on the issue to give you more context:
• Rush Limbaugh, you elite liberal feminist! | by NPR On the Media’s Bob Garfield
• Why anti-choice campaigners won’t let science get in their way | by feminist blogger Amanda Marcotte
• The Republican party declares war on women | by broadcaster Diane Roberts
• Virginia’s vagina-violating ultrasound law | by Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead
• Sex, Rick Santorum and the conservative imagination | by Guardian blogger Ana Marie Cox
