The Path Forward on Abortion Resource Guide

July 3, 2023

This page is updated regularly.

June 24, 2023, marks the first anniversary of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, ending the constitutional right to abortion and leaving abortion rights up to the states.  

Most abortions are now banned in 14 states following the Dobbs decision, and 6 states have strict gestational limits in place, ranging from 6 weeks to 20 weeks, functionally banning abortion. In another 6 states, abortion remains legal for now as courts determine whether their bans can take effect. Meanwhile, 20 states have moved to expand access to abortion by adding legal protections, through ballot measures, legislation, and other methods. Check out the latest updates in the states.

To mark this somber anniversary, join the Reform Movement in taking action to protect and advance abortion access.

Hate Crimes in 2021: An Incomplete Picture

While underreporting of hate crimes has been an ongoing issue, this report is more inaccurate than usual.
