The Overturning of Roe v. Wade
The 1973 Roe v. Wade decision of abortion as a federally protected right for women was overturned in June 2022. What does this mean for abortion access?
The overturning of Roe v. Wade means that abortion is no longer federally protected by the US Constitution and each state legislature now determines the authority to allow or restrict abortions.
States Where Abortion is Banned
Abortion state laws are now banned in around 13 states currently and this continues to change.
In Pennsylvania, the state has implemented multiple abortion restrictions and abortion is legal until 24 weeks. In West Virginia, almost all abortions are banned as of Sept. 16.
What States Allow Abortion
In most states, abortion still remains somewhat legal. Some states have more restrictive laws than others so access to abortion could be limited. About four states have a six-week ban while others have other abortion limits.
