After the Supreme Court announced its decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, an almost 50-year-old ruling, many states began to act and make their own regulations on abortion immediately. Many were asking, “Which states allow abortion and which ones do not?” This blog post will take a closer look to answer this question.
Which States Allow Abortion To Take Place?
Although laws are now subject to change based on the state’s voters and their representatives, many states still allow legal abortions. It should be noted, however, that some states still have bans after a certain number of gestational weeks. States that currently legalize abortion are:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- New York
However, there are other states, including Florida, Montana, and North Carolina where abortion is legal, but which may not remain that way for long based on the current governors in office.
Which States Ban Abortions?
States that currently have complete bans on abortion or are almost entirely banned include:
- North Dakota
- West Virginia
Others, including Wyoming, Utah, and Arizona, have what’s called a trigger law that is supposed to ban abortion in the state. However, injunctions are placing these restrictions on hold until further notice.
