Abortion Policies in {{ selectedState.state }}

{{ selectedState.environment_type }}

States have constructed a web of abortion laws and regulations that restrict or support whether, when and under what circumstances providers can offer abortion care and a pregnant individual can obtain an abortion. While a state’s abortion policies affect all people seeking care, they are particularly significant for individuals who find it difficult or outright impossible to access care when forced to navigate around abortion bans and restrictions. This includes people already facing barriers due to factors like their race, income, age or gender identity.

Abortion policies currently in effect in {{ selectedState.state }} include the following:

Notes:

People Who May Need an Abortion

Affordable and accessible abortion care is a right that exists only on paper for many people who are already marginalized and oppressed by structural inequities, including people with low incomes, Black and Brown communities and other people of color, young people, and those who are uninsured or are prohibited from using their insurance for abortion care.

Please note: Anyone who can get pregnant may need an abortion, including people who do not identify as women. We use “women of reproductive age” when describing the potential pool of abortion patients in order to reflect the terminology of our data sources. Only a fraction of the women of reproductive age in any state will need an abortion in any given year.

Abortion Facts in {{ selectedState.state }}

Key data points like the number of abortions obtained in a state and the distance patients have to travel to reach the nearest abortion provider can offer important context for each state. It is important to note that abortion data often take several years to become available and may not reflect recent changes. This is especially true in any state that has recently enacted restrictions on abortion or has seen a recent increase in patients traveling from states with restrictions or bans.
