After Roe Fell: Abortion Laws by State

With the recent overturn of Roe v. Wade by The Supreme Court in June of 2022, abortion policies and reproductive rights now lie in the hands of each state, and now we are seeing different abortion laws by state.

While it could take months for us to legally see where in the U.S. abortion is legal, it’s important to understand the breakdown of abortion laws by state in real-time, and understand abortion bands, types of abortion restrictions, what trigger bans are, and more.

The Center for Reproductive Rights looked at several legal factors—laws, constitutions, and court decisions—and assigned each state, territory, and the District of Columbia to one of five categories: Expanded AccessProtectedNot Protected, Hostile, and Illegal. Please use this interactive tool to explore a state or filter by category to see what’s really happening to abortion access in the U.S.
