Roe v. within 30 days. As of June 24, 11 states have banned all abortions or those performed after six weeks of pregnancy, according to the Guttmacher Institute.

As a result, 43 clinics, including 23 in the state of Texas alone, 5 in Oklahoma and 5 in Alabama, have closed or refocused their operations on other care, according to figures the organization’s data reference shows.

One of them, the “Pink House,” which was at the center of a case that led to a Supreme Court turnaround, was shut down on July 7 after long enough to provide abortions in Mississippi.

Some states, such as Louisiana or North Dakota, have laws banning abortions, but legal battles have slowed their implementation. Others, such as Indiana, convened an extraordinary parliamentary session to adopt new texts to this effect.

Eventually, half the states, especially in the conservative South and Central United States, should ban abortions.
