See where abortions are banned and legal — and where it’s still in limbo

Following the Supreme Court’s June 2022 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which eliminated a constitutional right to abortion nationwide, nearly two dozen US states have banned or limited access to the procedure. States where abortion is most limited report higher rates of maternal and infant mortality, as well as greater economic insecurity.

The fight over abortion is well underway in state legislatures and courts. On May 2, Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs signed a bill repealing a Civil War-era abortion ban — which had been reinstated by the state’s Supreme Court — leaving a 15-week ban in place. On April 24, the US Supreme Court heard a challenge by the Biden administration to Idaho’s enforcement of its abortion ban in medical emergencies. The ruling is expected by late June.

On May 1, a six-week ban took effect in Florida, replacing a 15-week ban. Later this year, the US Supreme Court will rule on access to the abortion pill.

CNN is tracking these legal challenges as they make their way through the courts. Here’s where abortion access currently stands in the United States.
