Florida's 6-week abortion ban could displace thousands each month in a region where access is already severely limited

·1 min

A ban on abortion in Florida will greatly restrict access to the procedure in a heavily populated state that has become a key access point amid regional restrictions. Florida accounted for a significant number of abortions in the South, with many people traveling from other states to obtain the procedure. The six-week ban could lead to a decrease in abortion care and force individuals to seek options in other states. The impact of the ban on abortion trends remains uncertain, but it is anticipated to exacerbate barriers to access and cause harm, particularly in the Southeast.
