Within the month for the reason that U.S. Supreme Courtroom voted to revoke abortions as a constitutional proper in its reversal of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, 43 clinics throughout 11 states have stopped providing abortion care.

These numbers are in accordance with the Guttmacher Institute, a analysis group that helps abortion rights.

From June 24, the day the ruling was reversed, to July 24, seven states — Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas — went from having 38 abortion clinics amongst them to having none. In 2020, these states accounted for 80,500 abortions.

All of these states have enacted whole abortion bans since Roe v. Wade was overturned, in accordance with the the institute, which focuses on sexual and reproductive well being rights.

Throughout that very same month, Georgia, Ohio, South Carolina and Tennessee — states that enacted abortion bans after six weeks of being pregnant — removed a complete 5 abortion clinics.

“Earlier than six weeks of being pregnant, many individuals aren’t even conscious but that they’re pregnant,” the Guttmacher Institute stated. “Even those that acknowledge their being pregnant straight away are left with solely a two-week window, at most, to resolve whether or not to hunt, after which schedule and acquire an abortion.”
