Conversations with An Expert: Shield Laws

One year later: #WeCount report on shifts in abortion in the states
#WeCount is a national abortion reporting effort to capture the shifts in abortion access by state. Earlier this month, #WeCount released a full year of data from April 2022 to March 2023, finding that there were a cumulative 25,640 fewer abortions in the first nine months after Roe was overturned. While there were increases in states that permitted abortion, these increases were not enough to compensate for the losses in states with bans.
In this webinar presented by SiX’s RFLC and the Society of Family Planning, Dr. Ushma Upadhyay and Dr. Alison Norris presented the new #WeCount data from April 2022 to March 2023.
