, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
and the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective
have joined forces and produced a Flash map showing the ratings of the 50 U. S. states in terms of reproductive rights and access
. Each state takes a colour somewhere between red and blue, depending on its rating (red = less access, blue = more access). The colours may have intentionally been selected to mimic the popular red-blue U. S. election maps
. Clicking on a state brings up reproductive related information on that state. Though the colour scheme is simple, the way the ratings are determined seems complex.
