The Path Forward on Abortion Resource Guide

July 9, 2024

June 2024 marks the two-year anniversary of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the disastrous Supreme Court decision that ended the constitutional right to abortion and left abortion rights up to the states.

Since the Dobbs decision, over 25 states have significantly restricted access to abortion, with 17 states implementing total bans. Check out the latest updates in the states.

However, attacks on abortion have not stopped there. In 2024, two cases reached the Supreme Court working to further limit access to abortion. In FDA v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, the Supreme Court rejected a challenge to the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of mifepristone (one of two common forms of medication abortion) but explicitly left the door open for future challenges to medication abortion. In Idaho v. United States, the Supreme Court temporarily paused Idaho’s near-total abortion ban that lacked a clear exception for emergency abortion care but returned the case to courts for future litigation, allowing states to deny life-saving abortion care. Additionally, numerous state legislatures and courts have attacked IVF and birth control.

Now more than ever, it's necessary to protect reproductive rights in every way we can. Join the Reform Movement in taking action to protect and advance abortion access.
