What Happens When Republicans Restrict Abortion Access

  1. 1. A HUFFINGTON POST GRAPHIC The Decline Of Abortion Access Since 2010, at least 54 abortion clinics have closed across the country, many as a direct result of new state laws targeting abortion providers. Even in some states that have seen no closures, such as Mississippi and North Dakota, the sole clinics in those states are only open because judges have temporarily blocked the enforcement of new regulations. Twenty-one states were unable to count their clinics because they don't regulate abortion providers separately from other medical providers, but most of them did not enact new restrictions on abortion providers in the past three years.
