Eight percent of women overall, rising to one in seven (14%) women of reproductive age (ages 18 to 49), say they or someone they know has had difficulty accessing an abortion due to restrictions in their state since Roe was overturned. Women living in states where abortion is banned are twice as likely to report knowing someone who had difficulty accessing an abortion compared to women living in states where abortion is limited or legal.

One in seven (14%) women living in states where abortion is banned say they or someone they know has struggled to access an abortion due to restrictions on abortions in their state, including one in five (21%) women ages 18-49 living in these states. Fewer women in states where abortion is limited by gestational periods (6%) or in states where abortion is legal past 22 weeks of gestation (7%) say they or someone they know has experienced such difficulties.
