Abortion demand rises as Supreme Court prepares to withdraw access

According to the Guttmacher Institute, a major trend in abortion care across America has begun to reverse, with the number of abortions declining in recent years.

From around 1990 to 2017, the country saw a marked drop in the number of abortions performed. However, between 2017 and 2020, Guttmacher saw an 8% increase in abortions as part of its triennial data collection effort, the group announced Wednesday. There were some 930,160 abortions in 2020, up from 862,320 abortions three years ago.

The increase was greatest in the West and Midwest. Guttmacher suggested a number of factors that may have contributed to the change, such as increased support for local abortion funds and expanded Medicaid coverage in some states.

“The increase in the number of abortions is a positive development if it means people are getting the health care they want and need,” Guttmacher said in a statement. “Instead of focusing on reducing abortion, policies should focus on people’s needs and protect their right to physical autonomy.”

But the findings come at an alarming moment in the history of American reproductive health care.

Based on a leaked draft of the Supreme Court’s majority opinion, the court in Roe v. Wade, set to reverse a 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. The opinion concerns a case questioning the legality of a 15-week abortion ban enacted by the state of Mississippi. Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed the authenticity of the leaked draft and said the court would find out who was responsible.

The court’s final decision on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case is expected by July 1.

With conservative justices now predominant in the Supreme Court, conservative states are working to pass more and more stringent abortion laws. Texas hit a new mark with a law banning abortion at about the six-week mark, which mandates ordinary citizens to enforce it, and other states are following suit.
