The overturning of Roe v Wade has been a massive success.
According to a report from The Guttmacher Institute, over 60% of abortion clinics in red states with strict abortion laws have closed in just the first 30 days since Roe v Wade was overturned.
Over a month after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade with the case of Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health, around 60 percent of clinics offering abortion in Republican-run states with strict abortion laws have shut down.
The Guttmacher Institute, in a new report, looked at 11 Republican-led states that have implemented near-total or total bans on abortion: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas.
These states had a total of 71 clinics providing abortions prior to the Supreme Court’s June 24 ruling. As of July 24, 28 of these clinics remain, with all being located in states with six-week abortion bans: Georgia, Ohio, South Carolina and Tennessee. In all, 61 percent of abortion clinics in these states have closed.
States with no remaining abortion clinics:
Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Texas.
States that lost abortion clinics but still have some:
Tennessee, Ohio, South Carolina, and Georgia.
