ATLANTA (AP) -- Republicans have no immediate hope of overturning the U.S. Supreme Court's decades-old decision legalizing abortion, so they're increasingly pushing legislation to restrict the procedure.  

That has Democrats saying they'll make the GOP pay in coming elections.  

From statehouses to Congress, Republicans have advanced a range of ideas that include banning nearly all abortions beyond the 20th week after conception; making abortion clinics follow regulations for surgical care; mandating that clinic physicians have admitting privileges at local hospitals; and requiring women to get ultrasounds before terminating a pregnancy.
