Why is Oregon "the Best Place to Have Sex"?

Because, says a website, of its lack of restrictions on abortion.

We may lack the romantic beaches of Hawaii or the urban charm of New York, but the Beaver State is the best place to have sex, at least according to progressive website Upworthy.

Oregon earned this distinction by becoming the state with the least number of abortion restrictions in the nation. Our number of restrictions? Zero. Oklahoma has the most, with 22 laws restricting abortions, including a near-total abortion ban that's unenforceable due to the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe vs. Wade that affirms a woman's right to choose.

 

The chart was compiled by the Remapping Debate, a Columbia University Journalism School public policy project. In it, they also found that states "enacted more restrictions on abortion in 2011 and 2012 than in any other years since Roe was decided four decades ago."
