The abortion landscape in the United States has shifted dramatically since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, declaring that there is no constitutional right to abortion and sending the issue back to the states to decide.
At least half of the 50 states have made strides to restrict or ban abortion outright, with more legislation on the horizon. South Carolina legislators have been in the process of further restricting abortion access, though the state Senate failed to advance a total ban on abortion, opting instead for a bill that adds restrictions to an existing law. An Arizona law prohibiting abortion after 15 weeks is also set to take effect on Sept. 24.
Several more states are engulfed in legal challenges preventing abortion laws on the books from going into effect, including North Dakota
