Over Half Of Women Of Reproductive Age Live In Abortion-Hostile States

Over half of U.S. women who are biologically able to get pregnant live in states that would be hostile to a woman seeking an abortion, according to a new study from the Guttmacher Institute. Twelve years ago, that statistic was only 31 percent. Women are not moving en masse; due to the slew of new abortion restriction laws in states across the country, they are just suddenly finding themselves in hostile territory.
