Within hours of each other, two federal appeals courts handed down separate decisions that affirmed sharp new limits on abortion and birth control.

Emily’s List and Planned Parenthood were numbers six and eight on the list of top ten spenders in September. Combined, the two single issue groups spent just under $4 million to help candidates that support abortion rights policies….
