Are you considering abortion but not sure what’s happened with abortion laws in your state after Roe v. Wade was overturned?
The overturning of Roe v. Wade now gives the power over to the states and those who reside there to determine what is and isn’t legal when it comes to abortion. Here’s what you need to know when it comes to women’s rights and abortion.
Will Women’s Rights or Healthcare Be Impacted?
In many states, abortion remains legal, either fully or partially. Some state laws are more restrictive than others, while others have abortion limits put in place.
As far as women’s rights, abortion bans do NOT affect a woman’s right to receive treatment for ectopic, high-risk pregnancy, or natural miscarriages (also called spontaneous abortions).
Abortion Access in Texas
In Texas, abortion is currently banned, with no exceptions for rape or incest. The only exception is if there is any threat to the life of the mother. See an in-depth look at abortion laws in Texas here.
If you are considering traveling out of state, neighboring states have similar abortion restrictions.
Before Traveling for an Abortion
Try to receive as much information as you can before making a pregnancy decision or traveling. After receiving a positive pregnancy test result, an ultrasound can verify the gestational age as well as the location of the pregnancy and confirm its viability.
An ultrasound will alert you to any potential health complications and to determine what options you are eligible for. It will help confirm the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy which requires immediate medical attention.
