How Your State Handles Abortion Access: A State-by-State Guide to Abortion Restrictions

50 states header
Aug 3, 2022

Updated on Aug. 3 with the latest regulations around abortion.

In June, the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade in a 5-4 decision. The ruling eliminates the constitutional right to an abortion. And leaves abortion access up to the states to decide. And with 50 states using different laws, it can be hard to keep track of what's allowed here, but no longer allowed there. 

Before we dive into how each state is handling abortion, here are some key phrases to keep in mind:

Fetal viability: A fetus’ ability to survive outside of the womb. The standard is about 24 to 28 weeks of pregnancy. 

LMP: Last menstrual period. 

Medication abortion: Aka the method, which uses medication to end a pregnancy. It’s FDA-approved and can be prescribed either in person or virtually (depending on your state). Abortion restrictions listed below refer to surgical abortions.

Post-fertilization age: How old a fetus is from the moment of conception. (When the egg meets the sperm.) However, many medical pros and the CDC count the fetus’s age from the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period. (And each state handles it differently. Read this to learn more about the differences.)

Trigger law: An almost-total abortion ban that goes almost immediately into effect when Roe’s overturned.

Now, here’s what abortion access looks like across the nation…
