On June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court issued its ruling on the Dobbs v Jackson’s Women’s Health Organization case, effectively overturning federal protections on abortion access, and giving way to state restrictions on abortion access across the country.

#WeCount reports quarterly on the changes in abortion volumes, nationally and by state, following the Dobbs ruling.

As of May 14, 2024, a new report is available on changes in abortions access during the 18 months following the Dobbs ruling. Read and share the press release and report!

Report highlights

  • Telehealth now accounts for 19% of all abortions reported to #WeCount.
  • Over 40,000 people living in states with total abortion bans, 6-week bans, or telehealth abortion restrictions in place have accessed abortion from providers in states with shield laws.
  • Abortion volume was higher in 2023 (monthly average of nearly 86,000 abortions) than in 2022 (monthly average of nearly 82,000 abortions).
  • The states with the greatest cumulative increases in the number of abortions since Dobbs are Illinois, California, and Florida.
