According to the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), if Roe v. Wade were overturned, abortion would be illegal in half of the U.S. states and all the U.S. territories.

If Roe fell:

  • 22 states have laws that could be used to restrict the legal status of abortion.
  • 8 states would retain their unenforced, pre-Roe abortion bans.
  • 11 states have post-Roe laws to ban all or nearly all abortions that would be triggered if Roe were overturned.
  • 9 states have post-Roe restrictions that are currently blocked by courts but could be brought back into effect with a court order in Roe’s absence.
  • See the map HERE:

    Based on the CRR’s analysis, if the Supreme Court were to overturn Roe, abortion would remain legal in twenty-one states. 

    There are twenty-four states—nearly all of which are situated in the central and southern parts of the country that could immediately prohibit abortion entirely. These states are capable of reviving old abortion bans or the enactment of new ones, and none of them has legal protections for abortion.

    Therefore, if Roe falls, states would be divided into abortion deserts, where it would be illegal to access care, and abortion havens, where care would continue to be available.
