With the reversal of Roe v. Wade and Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization this past year, the pro-life movement is starting to see the banning of abortions at state levels. At this point, 13 states ban nearly all abortions.
See which states have the toughest pro-life laws, which are sanctuaries for abortion, and what comes next in the fight to defend life in America with LifeSite’s map. The map has been updated to reflect the results of the 2022 midterm elections.
In the light blue states, abortion is now broadly banned at all stages of pregnancy. Heartbeat laws have taken effect in the darker blue states (Georgia), and 15-week pain-capable bans are now in effect in the pale blue states (Florida). Exceptions vary by state.
In the yellow states, bans have been temporarily blocked. Grey states lack significant post-Roe protections for the unborn before late in pregnancy.
They either: have meaningful cut-off points for abortion at or before viability (light red), allow abortion up to birth for broad “health” reasons (dark red), or allow abortion for any reason up to birth (darkest red).
