Anyone who needs abortion should be able to get timely, compassionate and affordable care, yet abortion bans and restrictions continue to push care further out of reach for many.

Guttmacher also tracks abortion-related legislation and policies at the federal and state levels.

That’s why policymakers must enact proactive policies that ensure coverage for abortion and the full spectrum of reproductive health care.
