Even as legal challenges against Texas’ six-week abortion ban continue, the law has already taken a heavy toll on patients and providers in the state. Among other harms, this ban could force Texans to travel an average of more than 200 additional miles each way for abortion care—and even then, their nearest clinic would likely be in another state hostile to abortion rights. With the law in effect, Roe v. Wade is effectively meaningless for one in 10 U.S. women aged 15-49.
