Demographics

The Guttmacher Institute studies trends in abortion service provision and patient demographics at the state and national level. By providing crucial data and policy analysis on the characteristics of women seeking abortions, the Institute strives to paint a more comprehensive picture of met and unmet reproductive health needs in the United States, especially among disadvantaged groups.

Young people are one of the groups that are hit especially hard by abortion bans and restrictions like parental involvement laws. Minors also often lack financial resources and encounter logistical obstacles to accessing abortion care.
