Life-Saving Laws in the States

Last Updated: August 6, 2022

The Estimated Impact on abortions reflects 2019 CDC data or more recent state numbers. For states that protect life at fertilization, numbers reflect all abortions reported in the state. For states with heartbeat laws and pain-capable laws, numbers reflect estimates of abortions that would be prohibited under the law using gestational age data from the states and CDC.
