*Corrections, Jan. 25, 2016: A 2007 study by the PFPPA and UNRWA found that 40 percent of 333 women surveyed in West Bank refugee camps had undergone an abortion and also stated that some of those women said their abortions were spontaneous and involuntary. An earlier version of this article incorrectly said in its subheading and body that approximately 40 percent of Palestinian women in the West Bank had undergone an abortion and also said that 26 percent of those abortions had been conducted through unsafe, at-home methods. The study was unclear about whether 26 percent of the abortions were through unsafe, at-home methods or whether 26 percent of women reported knowing of someone who had experienced an unsafe, at-home abortion.
Boxer voted in support of the 2002 Help America Vote Act , which mandated the use of voting machines across the country, among other provisions. On February 18, 2005, Senator Boxer and colleges introduced the Count Every Vote Act of 2005, which would provide a voter verified paper ballot for every vote cast in electronic voting machines and ensure access to voter verification for all citizens. The bill mandates that this ballot be the official ballot for purposes of a recount. The bill sets a uniform standard for provisional ballots and requires the Federal Election Assistance Commission to issue standards that ensure uniform access to voting machines and trained election personnel in every community. The bill also mandated improved security measures for electronic voting machines.  The bill did not pass.
